Always a colorful and unforgettable experience of Mexican culture and music

Why See Lila Downs?

ConcertsWorld Music

Live on stage

A performance by Lila Downs is always a colorful and unforgettable experience of Mexican culture and arts, as the singer-songwriter incorporates traditional music and dance from a variety of Mesoamerican cultures, as well as native languages and ancient traditions and folklore.

Born to artistic parents, her mother is a Mixtec singer and father a film-maker. Lila uses ancient and indigenous cultures as an inspiration in her music, and studied anthropology at thr University of Minnesota. Her lyrics often also have a social and political message, reflecting social issues which she feels strongly about such immigration and cultural heritage. Lila won a Latin Grammy Award in 2004 for her album Una Sangre, which translates as One Blood.

The Oresteia

How do we respond to a volatile world, to the crises we find ourselves living through? How do we gain anything like perspective? One way is to look at these great plays, to see how the Greeks met their own times as artists.
