On this the eve of the Day of the Dead we present the first video produced by The Mariachi Ghost. The film, directed by Guy Maddin, is a Mexican mystic extravaganza that creates a beautiful universe that mixes the old Mexico with modernity and uses many Mexican archetypes.

“I think what is most exciting about the video is that it truly speaks of the great diversity of Canadian art – where a filmmaker and a band can see eye to eye in such a beautiful way, almost transcending time,” says The Mariachi Ghost’s Jorge Requena. “The video is perfect for our music and it dances along so beautifully. It’s like being at a seance in old Mexico, while listening to The Mariachi Ghost. I am elated to be able to show this to the world.”
