Six-time Latin Grammy winner Lila Downs returns to the Newman Center with her eclectic mix of Mexican pop, folk, and indigenous roots music along with a performance style that is uniquely hers. With a symbolic stage presence and emotional storytelling through song, her singing transcends all language barriers. Lila Downs Returns to Denver
Born and raised in both Oaxaca and Minnesota, Lila Downs is the daughter of a Mixtec Indigenous woman and Anglo-American father. She has written narratives of Indigenous resistance protecting the original vision of the sacred plants and food of her Oaxacan culture while keeping the traditions of the American continent.
Lila Downs’s music embraces influences from the folkloric and ranchera music of Mexico to the music of the southern United States, crossing barriers and generating sounds that go from folk, jazz, folkloric blues, indigena, and ranchera to hip hop.
