"Oaxacan Comparsa" showcases a "comparsa," a traditional Mexican parade whereby people dress up as "Calaveras" to invite their deceased family members and make them feel at home during the Day of the Dead. The setting for this work is the church of Santo Domingo de Guzmán in Oaxaca. The main goal of this work is to capture the essence of a comparsa and the spirit of the Día de los muertos celebration in the state of Oaxaca.
