Lila Downs' Dia de los Muertos: La Sanchez at The Paramount Theatre

Lila Downs' Dia de los Muertos: La Sanchez at The Paramount Theatre

About

With “a stunning voice, a confident multicultural vision grounded in her Mixtec Indian roots” (LA Times), GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY-winning vocalist Lila Downs is one of the most celebrated singers of her generation. She brings a special night of music to the Paramount, celebrating Día de los Muertos, Mexico’s Day of the Dead and her latest album, La Sánchez. This special concert event will include folklorico dancing, a mariachi band, stunning visual projections and much more.

A native of Oaxaca, Downs built a career bridging cultures and languages, both as a musician and social activist for humanitarian causes.

She made her major label debut with 1999’s jazz-informed La Sandunga, and her contributions to the 2002 Frida Kahlo biopic Frida elevated her status to that of a major international star. Downs has become recognized worldwide as a global ambassador for Mexico’s folkloric traditions and champion for the preservation of native Mexican culture, recording songs in indigenous Mayan, Nahuatl, Trique, and Purépecha languages. Her newest Sony Music album, La Sánchez, is influenced by the music of northern Mexico and is a tribute to recognizing the maternal influence and the vicissitudes of personal and social relationships.
