"Lila Downs has one of the world’s mostsingular voices and innovative approaches to music. She is the daughter of a Mixtec Indian woman, Anastasia Sanchez, who ran away from her village at 15 tosing in Mexico City cantinas and a University of Minnesota professor Allen Downs,who saw her singing and fell in love. Lila grew up both in Minnesota andOaxaca, and her music and vocal artistry has many influences, including thefolk and ranchera music of Mexico and South America and American folk, jazz, blues and hip-hop. Many of her lyrics focus on issues relating to social justice, and often tell the stories of the workers who migrate from rural Mexico to work in the U.S."
