Lila Downs

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


Oaxaca, Mexico singer Lila Downs weaves rancheras, cumbias, boleros and other Mexican and Latin styles with the energy of rock and the swing of jazz. Before you realize that whatever Lila Downs touches turns to art, it’s that voice that draws you to want to learn the rest. After eight albums in 15 years, her new anthology, The Very Best Of El Alma De Lila Downs, captures that singing in all its piercing power and eclectic glory. Lila has sung in Spanish, English, Portuguese and French, as well as the native tongues of Mixtec, Nahautl, Mayan and Zapotec, but even if one doesn’t fully understand what she’s saying, her open heart is universal.
