LILA DOWNS

Known for her striking voice and magnetic performances, Mexican singer and composer Lila Downs has created one of the most singular explorations of Mexican roots music on both sides of the border and in the process has become one of the most internationally renowned world music artists. By studying Mexican folk rhythms, native dialects and blending them with blues and rock, Downs has composed a unique body of work. A Latin Grammy Award-winner, Lila Downs’ vision is anthropological in nature and as varied as the ancient and earthy cultures that continue to nurture and inspire her. The Los Angeles Times praises Downs as “one of the most interesting and compelling artists from Mexico.”
