With an innate emotional vibrancy, singer/songwriter Lila Downs brings her extraordinary voice wrought with color and range back to the Fine Arts Center. The first Latina to perform at the Academy Awards, Downs infuses jazz, gospel, and hip-hop influences into traditional cumbias for a powerful musical, cultural and political statement. Motivated by the songs and stories of the Oaxacan people, Lila Downs promises to reinvigorate the soul and pay homage to her ancestral roots.
Please join us for a pre-performance tour of the exhibition currently on view at the University Museum of Contemporary Art.
