Grammy Award-winning singer and a celebrated fusion artist who effortlessly mixes traditional Mexican music with jazz, blues, rock, and pop, the internationally acclaimed Lila Downs returns to the Auditorium Theatre for her third appearance on our landmark stage. Downs’ impressive vocal range goes from “an airborne near-falsetto down to a forthright alto and a sultry, emotive contralto” (New York Times).
