Lila Downs has one of the world’s most singular voices and innovative approaches to music. A Mexican-American world music superstar, she is known for her opera-trained vocal range and her unique synthesis of indigenous Mesoamerican music with cumbia, soul, jazz and hip hop. Over the course of nearly a dozen albums, Downs has earned a Grammy Award and multiple Latin Grammys as she and her band create a cross-cultural expression. Downs’ newest album, Salón, Lágrimas y Deseo, affirms her outspoken artistic power.

“Spellbinding!” Billboard

“An almost superhuman three-octave range.”The Guardian (U.K.)

“Few alternative artists have the dynamic power and range of this bilingual warrior-woman.” NPR

“A renowned Mexican balladeer known for her wild outfits, wide range and powerful voice, a goose-bump-inducing instrument that can go from playful to grave from one note to the next.” Los Angeles Times
