Description

Lila Downs invitation at Malverde in Austin on March 13, 2012

Join us for an intimate reception with renown artist and platinum singer, Lila Downs, in a benefit for schools in her native Oaxaca, Mexico. Entry is a $40 donation.

Lila Downs, born in Oaxaca, Mexico, is the daughter of Mixtec singer Anita Sánchez and Allen Downs, a Scottish-American art professor and filmmaker. Her musical vision is anthropological in nature and as varied as the ancient and earthy cultures that continue to nurture and inspire her. For over a decade, Lila Downs has traversed the planet, bringing her dramatic and highly unique reinvention of traditional Mexican music and original compositions fused with blues, jazz, soul, African root, and even klezmer music, all supporting her soaring voice.

Entry includes appetizers, a tasting of Wahaka Mezcal, and cocktails prepared by La Condesa’s mixologist Cesar Aguilar. All proceeds will benefit schools in San Dionisio de Ocotepec, Oaxaca, Mexico.

This event is invite-only. Space is limited. Buy tickets now to ensure entry.
