Boasting a "cantina-classical" (The Washington Post) voice and delightfully eclectic compositions inspired by ancient cultures and her own Mexican-American heritage, Lila Downs is a singular performer. Expect elements of jazz, blues and world music to collide in Downs' seductive, joyful concert.

“She’s David Bowie as the Thin White Duke. Beyoncé as Sasha Fierce … Downs channels Lola Beltrán, Mercedes Sosa, Chavela Vargas, and other musical greats in performances that conjure their voices and spirits, but with a sweeping vocal range.” -SF Weekly
