World-traveling singer Lila Downs dramatically fuses traditional Mexican music with blues, jazz, soul and even klezmer music in her original compositions.
Her new album, Pecados y Milagros (Sins and Miracles), which has won 2012 Latin Grammy and 2013 Grammy Awards, was heavily influenced by traditional Mexican votive paintings. In turn, Downs was inspired to commission spectacular votive paintings for each track, which will be featured as projections throughout the concert.
Based on the album, this unique performance will combine Downs’s sumptuous music and vocals with projected images of paintings from the exhibit, weaving together a powerful combination of sight and sound. The results are sure to be spellbinding.
A pair of tickets to Lila Down’s performance at the Chan Centre for Performing Arts on April 21, 2013 at 7pm.
