Lila Downs

May, 2008

The dynamic and rich sound of Lila Downs' music is rooted in the traditional sound of her Mesoamerican upbringing but reaches out to and embraces the modern rhythms of jazz and blues. Her unique and smooth sound is highlighted by her unflinching passion for artistic expression that shines through with every release. Downs' additions to the soundtrack of Frida, a film about revolutionary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song.
