Few alternative artists have the dynamic power and range of this bilingual warrior-woman, who has recorded nine albums, earning a Grammy and four Latin Grammys along the way.

Agave Heritage Festival, Pueblos del Maíz, and Arizona Arts Live are proud to bring Lila Downs back to the Old Pueblo for a live performance at Centennial Hall on Thursday, April 28th. The concert will serve as the official kickoff event for the annual Agave Heritage Festival (Apr 28-May 1) and the inaugural Pueblos Del Maiz (May 5-May 8).

Mexican American singer and activist Lila Downs is adored by her many fans for staying true to her roots even while she is always moving forward. Through a long career that has earned her multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy Awards, she now ranks as one of the most recognizable singers in Latin alternative music.

A commanding presence at center stage, Downs, “no stranger to raising hell and consciousness through the power of song” (Rolling Stone), with her superhuman vocal range and a deeply empathetic spirit, she champions the causes of immigrants, women, and indigenous groups in her genre-hopping compositions. Her latest release, Al Chile, is infused with the infectious rhythms of cumbia and explores themes of pleasure and pain, suffering, and redemption, through the metaphor of Mexico’s ubiquitous chili pepper.
