- Lila Downs is: the Oaxaca-born singer who won three Grammys for her songs in Spanish, English, and numerous indigenous languages
- Her inspirations: living in both Mexico and the U.S. as a child; listening to jazz standards, Woody Guthrie ballads, and the winsome rancheras of her mother, a cabaret singer of Mixtec descent
- Her voice: warm, smoky, and surprisingly strong
- Her most recent Grammy: Best Regional Mexican Music Album in 2012 for Pecados y Milagros, which was also praised by the New York Times for “a thrilling, chameleonic voice at its center: one that can go for playfulness, operatic bravura or tearful, heart-on-sleeve melodrama”
- Her most-recent album: 2014’s Raíz, a collaboration between herself, Niña Pastori, and Soledad
- Irene Dias is: an acclaimed L.A. singer-songwriter whose hypnotic torch songs sound straight out of film noir, if film noir had more ukeleles
- What Don Gonyea of NPR’s All Things Considered said to her: “Anyone who hears your voice will wonder where have you been all this time.”
- What Vents Magazine says: “Quite possibly, someday Irene could join Ella and Nina and Billie and Rosemary as a queen of torch.”
