You may see ofrendas--small altars set up to pay tribute to people who have passed away. It’s a tradition that’s been present in the Mission for years, but how it’s celebrated depends on who you ask.</p><p> Fri, 01 Nov 2013 00:14:02 +0000 Leila Day & Martina Castro & Rachel Wong 35263 at http://kalw.org The many translations of Day of the Dead Today's Local Music: Amelia Romano http://kalw.org/post/todays-local-music-amelia-romano <p>Today we are featuring the harp-playing of <a href="http://www.myspace.com/ameliaromano">Amelia Romano</a>.&nbsp;She&rsquo;s one of three young harpists performing at the &ldquo;Festival of Harps, the Next Generation,&rdquo; taking place this Wednesday, August 8 at the <a href="http://www.missionculturalcenter.org/">Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts</a> in San Francisco.
