Description

Lila Downs has created one of the most singular explorations of Mexican roots music on both sides of the border, and in the process, become one of the most internationally renowned world music artists. The daughter of an American professor and a Mixtec cabaret singer, Downs came of age in both countries. By studying folk Mexican rhythms and native dialects and blending them with American folk, blues and rock, Downs has created a unique body of work through her previous releases La Sandunga (1999), Tree of Life / Arbol de la Vida (2000), Border / La Linea (2001), Latin Grammy winner One Blood / Una Sangre (2004), La Cantina “Entre Copa y Copa” (2006), and the Grammy nominated Shake Away/Ojo de Culebra (2008).

Her new release, Pecados y Milagros (Sins & Miracles) is an exploration of these religious notions in light of modern events, inspired by Downs’ experience becoming a new mother (something she calls “a miracle”), and a contemplation of the meaning of “sin” in the modern world.

This groundbreaking music and fine arts project was presented at MUNAL, the fine arts museum of México City, where viewers experienced the paintings and music as an integrated experience. Her live concerts also integrate these powerful images into her performance as visual projections.

Downs will be accompanied in this concert by her group of multi-national multi-instrumentalist musicians, La Misteriosa.
