Lila Downs, from Mexico, is an icon of Latin American music. Anthropologist, actress, composer and activist, Downs speaks Spanish and English, and also Mixteco and Zapoteco, the native languages of her country. This cultural fusion is reflected in her music, in which she combines styles like cumbia and rancheras, hip-hop and rock, son and bolero, mariachi and reggae. Her powerful voice and committed lyrics are another of her characteristics, as will be evident at the concert to launch her eleventh studio album, “Salón, lágrimas y deseo”, which is part of the 49th Voll-Damm International Festival.
