Lila Downs – CANCELED
May 5 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Known for her unique synthesis of Latin American folk, jazz fusion, and South American rhythms, GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY winner Lila Downs is an internationally-acclaimed singer and songwriter from Oaxaca, Mexico. Downs’ full body of work is saturated in a story deep in strength, resistance, and cultural pride.
Her latest album, Al Chile, marks her ninth — a collection of cumbia-inspired beats and Mexican percussion, her impressive three-octave vocal range peppering the vibrant, yet nostalgic tracks. The album is meant to “pay homage to the chile,” states Downs. “With a mezcal in hand, we dream of a place with a palm tree where one falls in love and reflects” (The Mercury News).
Downs returns to Duke Performances for a lively Cinco de Mayo celebration at the Carolina Theatre of Durham.
