For over a decade, Lila Downs has traversed the planet, bringing her dramatic and highly unique reinvention of traditional Mexican music and original compositions. A musical journey with Lila Downs is always fascinating, simultaneously edgy and powerful, yet sumptuous and graceful.
Hollywood also took notice when Lila played a role in the Salma Hayek film “Frida” and then performed the Oscar-nominated soundtrack song “Burn It Blue” on the Academy Awards telecast, becoming the first Mexican to perform on the awards ceremony. Her music has been included in several other feature films such as “Tortilla Soup,” “Real Women Have Curves,” “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada,” and Carlos Saura’s “Fados.” For tickets call 956-882-8587
