Lila Downs @ The Dolby Theatre

Lila Downs @ The Dolby Theatre

Lila Downs is a bewitching Oaxacan chanteuse who has the uncanny ability to draw out the essence of traditional Mexican music and infuse it with jolts of modern flavor. Her latest album, Salon, Lagrimas y Deseo, might seem like an escapist collection of lush balladry and dreamy boleros, but Downs connects even in her most romantic passages to the struggles of people trying to fit in on both sides of the border. Even as she defiantly declares her Latina identity despite being hemmed in by increasingly conservative political forces, she also invokes and calls upon her feminine power to center herself during these crazy times. Downs empathizes with Chilean singer Mon Laferte on the weepy “Peligrosa” and trades majestic melodies with Carla Morrison on “Ser Paloma” after exchanging steadfast entreaties with Andrés Calamaro on the uptempo “Envidia.”
