Lila Downs at the Chan Centre, Win Tickets

Comments 34 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC welcomes back Mexican-American vocalist Lila Downs, who will share her eclectic and vibrant blend of boleros, jazz, rock, blues, and more in the Chan Shun Concert Hall.

Lila Downs at the Chan Centre

With proud Indigenous roots and a powerful social conscience, Downs last year released her tenth studio album, Salon Lágrimas y Deseo. This collection of works honouring iconic Latin American women won the 2017 Latin Grammy for ‘Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album’. Chan Centre audiences will be among the first to hear these empowering and uplifting anthems live.

Lila Downs at the Chan Centre

Where: Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (at UBC, 6265 Crescent Rd, Vancouver)
When: Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 8:00pm
Tickets: Available online now from $46, in person at the box office, or by calling (604) 822-2697.

Lila Downs is the daughter of a Mixtec woman who left her village at 19 to sing in Mexico City cantinas. Her father is a Minnesota-born, Scottish-American professor who, upon seeing Downs’ mother perform, instantly fell in love. As a result, Downs grew up in Minnesota and Oaxaca with stylistic influences from both sides of the border. Today, she is considered one of the most innovative exponents of Mesoamerican music.
