The source of inspiration for "Las Señoras Matanzas" comes from the ancient tradition of the slaughter of fattened goats that is celebrated every year at Hacienda del Rosario very close to the City of Huajuapán de León Oaxaca, Mexico. During this great Mixtec festival, thousands of goats are killed, the meat of which is used to make the famous Mole de Cadera (a particular stew from the region). The term Mixtec refers to an indigenous Indian people of Mexico and means "cloud people". The Mixtec area corresponds roughly to the western half of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. They are known for their exceptional mastery of jewelry and mosaic, in which gold and turquoise figure prominently.
