Cuentos from El Campo Santo
Season Two: Hauntings
A house yearning to be built. A silent horror on a mountaintop. A mysterious entity willing its own creation. In his mother's old house in the heart of Barelas, Reyes Saavedra unearths untold accounts of hauntings across New Mexico.
Experience Season Two of El Campo Santo through letters, plays, stories, journals, and more, presented in an interactive map of our beautiful state. New episodes every Tuesday on Anchor, Apple Podcasts and most other platforms. This project was made possible by the hard work of dozens of collaborators and generous grants from the City of Albuquerque Cultural Services Department and New Mexico Arts.
While we have resumed our (digital and distanced) season, we would like to encourage our audiences to continue directing attention toward Black voices and local organizers in our community and nationwide.
