Calaveritas, which means little skulls, explains the feeling of love and respect for those who have passed away, that is rooted in Latin American culture.
“Calaveritas is an homage to those who've passed away,” said Tijoux in a statement by her music label Firebrand Records. “A song that tells us that our loved ones are never really gone, that they live with us in both our happiest moments and accompany us in the saddest of times.”
The song, recorded with Mexican artist Celso Piña, invites listeners to remember those who are gone. Part of the lyrics reads "We all carry within us / one who died before us / who appears when night falls and the sun goes out"
