Mexican Blaze of Colour

Multiculturalism was practically born in her cradle: Lila Downs is the daughter of an Indian mother and an American father with Scottish roots. She spent her childhood and youth in the USA and Mexico, where she gained experience as a mariachi singer from an early age. On this diverse cultural background, Downs' blaze of colour unfolds brilliantly. This applies both to the portrayal of her personality and to her music, in which she combines Latin American, North American and indigenous cultures into a colourful sound symbiosis.

Whether new interpretations of Woody Guthrie's songs, original compositions or folk songs like »La Bamba« and »La Cucaracha« – Lila Downs always finds a way to ignite a new light, a new perspective on the music of her homeland, be it ranchera, mariachi, bolero, waltz or cumbia. With a dash of jazz and reggae, she and her internationally-staffed band always set the course in an unmistakably new way.
