Drawing on the religious traditions of her Mixtec and Zapotec ancestors, singer-songwriter Lila Downs creates a vision with her music that is both exotic and familiar. Fueled by her smoky voice and the innovative way she mingles rock, hip-hop, blues, cumbia and traditional Mexican music, her 2011 album Pecados y Milagros debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin music charts. She’s performed at the Academy Awards and even appeared on the Frida and Real Women Have Curves soundtracks. Now experience her music live as she makes a Hollywood stop on her Balas y Chocolate Tour at the Pantages.
