About Linda EPO

Linda EPO's voice represents the melting pot she was born into, blending the powerful yet coy vocals found in Mexican ranchera music with the jazz and blues influences she grew up with in New York City.  She has toured with the Grammy-nominated Heritage Blues Orchestra in Europe, receiving stellar reviews. She is still feeling the love from a Mexico 2021 tour as part of an integral member of the Mexican-roots collective Nixtaband, and as a soloist, Linda's voice has reached as far as Tahiti. Having a reputation for leaving everything on stage when she performs, Linda is honest with her voice and unapologetic with her sound and stage presence. Each note she sings is filled with melancholic passion intertwined with natural melodic beauty, and every performance is filled with earnest passion and depth.

About the Day of the Dead

The Day of the Dead has been one of Mexico's most important festivals since Pre-Hispanic times. It is a time for families to gather and welcome the souls of the dead on their annual visit home. Cempasúchil (marigold) flowers, burning copal incense, fresh pan de muertos bread, candles, sugar skulls, photographs, and mementos of the departed adorn special altars. In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is celebrated over an entire week with the preparation of altars, foods, dance, music, and special offerings for people who have died. Mano a Mano recreates the magical space of a village churchyard during the celebration and has organized a series of events, including altar building, workshops, dance, poetry, and music.

About the Hispanic Society Museum and Library

The Hispanic Society of America was founded in 1904 by Archer Milton Huntington (1870-1955) with the object of establishing a free, public museum and reference library for the study of the art and culture of Spain, Portugal, Latin America, and the Philippines. HSM&L houses a vast collection of paintings, watercolors, drawings, prints, and photographs, as well as sculpture and decorative objects dating from the first millennium BCE to the 20th century. As HSM&L continues comprehensive renovation of the Museum's Main Building, it has maintained public and educational programs both on virtual platforms and in person, including concerts, public lectures, and temporary exhibitions. They have also reactivated the outdoor space with exhibitions and public programs on Audubon Terrace in partnership with several local artists and community arts organizations.
