Release Date: 2009-03-25

Lila Downs is a cantante known for blending her indigenous Mexican musical roots with American rhythms. Her personal story is quite fascinating. Her mother is a Mixteca Indian from Mexico and her father is a Scottish cinematography professor from Minnesota. For a moment during her college years in Minnesota, Lila took a break and followed the Grateful Dead. After that experience, she decided to reconnect with her Oaxacan roots and began to explore singing as a career. With a Grammy nomination and a performance at the Academy Awards to her credit, it seems as if she made the right choice. Free, 6pm opening acts, Sunken Garden Theater, 3875 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 228-0201
