My Mixtape asks people from the Bay Area and beyond to contribute a song that is meaningful to them. For this Halloween installment, magician and host of the San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour Christian Cagigal tell us why he picked this song by Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Magician and actor Christian Cagigal combines his acting chops and sleight of hand to create unforgettable onstage illusions. His critically-acclaimed solo shows use storytelling and audience participation  to create intimate and disarming experiences. Cagigal talked with KALW’s Jen Chien about combining theater with sleight of hand. 

CAGIGAL: I want you to confront what you think is real, and what you think is not. 

Cagigal also performed a trick live in studio. Check it out in the video below.
