Lila Downs // Berkeley

SFJAZZ Center
201 Franklin Street, San Francisco

Mexican-American vocalist Lila Downs is a GRAMMY winner and one of the most celebrated singers of her generation.

A native of Oaxaca, she’s built a career bridging cultures and languages, both as a musician and social activist for humanitarian causes. Growing up as the daughter of a Mixtec singer and a renowned American photographer, Downs blended a deep passion for the traditions of her homeland with an ingrained wanderlust.

An astonishingly gifted vocalist with a classically trained three-octave range, and an arresting songwriter who tells poignant stories about love, death, loss, and betrayal, Lila Downs is a genre unto herself. Raised in Minnesota and Oaxaca,

Downs sings of a Pan-American social consciousness in her rousing performances, drawing on folk and ranchera music of Mexico and South America, and American folk, jazz, blues, and hip-hop—blending irreverent and fun themes with serious social and political concerns in a distinctive style the Washington Post has called “cantina classical.”
