Music/VideoFilter: Looking for the name of a music video with a Mexican Day of the Dead theme.

I saw this late at night on PBS. Although I couldn't understand the Spanish, the gist of the video was of a man who had refused to accept the fact that he had died and was now among the dead. Eventually the man relents and finds peace in joining the community of the dead.
Its music was fairly traditional, a woman's voice and maybe couple of guitars, no pop overtones. The video was done very well in a claymation/Corpse Bride type style, and the underworld and its characters were all rendered in what I call traditional Mexican, Day of the Dead style. Although the music was quite sad, the video was light and whimsical.
