Lila Downs 

When: Sat., Oct. 12, 8 p.m. 2019
Price: $37-$102
Celebrating Día de los Muertos, Mexico’s Day of the Dead, is a time-honored tradition in The Bay Area, where the residents resplendent in skull-masks and make-up take to the streets for parades, festivals, scrumptious foods, and beautiful music. Grammy Award-winning singer Lila Downs is recognized worldwide as a global ambassador for Mexico’s folkloric traditions by incorporating indigenous Mexican influences and languages such as Mixtec, Zapotec, Mayan, Nahuatl, and Purépecha into her music. A champion for the preservation of native Mexican culture, Downs wears traditional fashion, based around Mexico’s indigenous peoples’ styles and cultures. With a stunning voice and multicultural vision grounded in her roots, she is one of the most celebrated singers of her generation. Downs brings a celebratory night of music to the Paramount.
