Lila Downs

“... perhaps one of the most recognizable traditional singers in Latin alternative music.” —Rolling Stone

Winner of seven Grammys, celebrated singer and Artist Series favorite Lila Downs is one of the most powerful and unique voices today. With symbolic stage presence and emotional storytelling, her singing transcends all language barriers.  A passionate human rights activist, Lila Downs’ lyrics tell stories ranging from social injustice to the suppressed Latin American stories of indigenous and working-class women. Her music embraces influences from the folkloric and ranchera music of Mexico to that of the southern United States, crossing barriers and generating sounds that go from folk, jazz, folkloric blues, indigena and ranchera to hip-hop. 

For more than 80 years, the Artist Series has brought the globe's finest jazz, classical, world music and dance performers to Boulder. Many of these performances sell out; order your tickets today to guarantee the best seats.
