  •  Lensic Performing Arts Center

Iconic Grammy and Latin Grammy Award-winning singer Lila Downs is one of the world’s most singular and powerful voices, whose compelling stage presence and poignant storytelling transcend all language barriers. Raised in Minnesota and Oaxaca, this global superstar’s exquisite artistry bridges traditions from across the Americas, with influences ranging from the folk and ranchera music of Mexico and South America to North American folk, jazz, blues, and hip-hop. As a passionate human-rights activist, Lila’s lyrics often highlight issues relating to social justice, sharing stories that too often go untold.

On her new album, “Al Chile”, Lila pays homage to chile and the complicated relationship Mexicans have with the fiery fruit that causes them happiness, suffering, sweat and tears.

Lila has graced the stages of many of the world’s most prestigious festivals and venues, including Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Hollywood Bowl. She has played the Lensic to sold-out audiences many times and we are excited to welcome her back in 2020!
