Lila Downs / Orkesta Mendoza At The Prospect Park Bandshell On Thursday, June 29th!

“LILA DOWNS is one of today’s great ambassadors of Mexican folk music. For twenty-five years, she has brought her magnetic, operatic voice to twelve albums, earning a GRAMMY and four Latin GRAMMYs. She has a long history as a human rights activist both onstage and off, telling stories that touch on cultural and political issues, including a deeply felt ballad about the assassination of social activist Digna Ochoa. Born to a Mixtec mother, Downs preserves her heritage by singing in many indigenous Mexican languages such as Zapotec, Mayan, Nahuatl, Purépecha, and her original Mixtec.”
