Nine members of Batalá San Francisco traveled to Mexico in November 2015 to join Batalá Mexico and Batalá Tepoztlán for Dia de los Muertos festivities. Members from sister bands Batalá Washington DC, Los Angeles, Houston, and Netherlands played together during workshops with Giba Gonçalves and performances, hiked together to the pyramids of Teotihuacán (outside of Mexico City) and El Tepozteco (outside of Tepoztlán), and took part in local festivities during a magical week in Mexico.
