Act 5
“Find Them!”
Upon realising Catrina’s escape Baron Samedi looks to his family for the traitor. Ti Malis’s absence is evidence enough of his guilt. In hot pursuit of Catrina, Baron Samedi is maddened by the prospect of not catching her before sunrise but is spurred on by the thrill of a fight.

“The Duel”
Baron Samedi catches up with Catrina and Ti Malis. Unwilling to give up Baron Samedi and Ti Malis exchange blows in almost equal measure. Baron Samedi celebrates victory after every successful hit leaving him exposed for Ti Malis to return blows and more than enough time for Catrina to continue on to the gates of the graveyard. The rest of the Loa gather around the two pugilists.

“At the Gates”
Father Velásquez, reluctant to enter the cemetery, calls to Catrina to hurry as he spots Baron Samedi in the distance. Once the sun has risen only the living can exit the cemetery.
“Run Girl, Run!” he exclaims.
Ti Malis, although beaten by Baron Samedi opens a bloodied eye towards the gates of the graveyard, he smiles knowing he has kept Baron Samedi busy enough for Catrina to effect her escape. The remaining Ghede, headed by Baron Samedi, rush to block Catrina’s path to freedom as the sun crests above the horizon.
They are too late!
The Loa scurry back to their subterranean crypts to avoid the light of the new day.
Catrina, now safe, embraces Father Velásquez vowing to always celebrate life and the lives of the dearly departed especially on The Day of the Dead.

“Almost Sunrise”
Running to the gates of the graveyard Catrina fears for Ti Malis but knows that his fate is sealed once the sun has fully risen. She sees the familiar face of Father Velasquez in the distance and knows she is almost safe.

Funk is not all we do though, and Rock/Prog/Jazz/Fusion feature across our Instrumental prog-funk escapades.

We present our first concept album "Dia de los Muertos". Written as one 37 minute piece, to be enjoyed in its entirety.

Thanks for taking the time to listen!
