For over a decade, this Oaxaca-born and Minnesota-raised singer has expertly dipped into traditional Mexican music and fused it with blues, jazz, soul and other Latin roots traditions while leaving audiences spellbound "with the ferocious sweep of her voice" (Boston Globe). With performances at prestigious venues and events such as Carnegie Hall and the Latino Inaugural Ball for President Barack Obama plus a Latin Grammy® and Grammy® nomination, Downs' sound is accomplished and polished yet very much her own. A musical journey with Lila Downs promises to be unforgettable: simultaneously powerful, yet sumptuous and graceful--born and delivered from a melodic melting pot that is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Downs' voice, backed by classic Mexican rhythms, jazzy sax tones and electric guitar riffs, is "nothing if not crowd-pleasing and jubilant in her delivery" (Huffington Post).
