Lila Downs Returning to Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall November 8th
Lila Downs will be performing at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall for one night only on November 8, 2022. You don’t want to miss this rich cultural event in Costa Mesa.
Down sings ballads about the pain of love loss, death, and she written unique compositions on social injustice. Her music is moving and extraordinary.
Known as one of Mexico’s greatest singers and cultural ambassadors, the multi-Grammy Award®- winning Mexican-American singer returns to Segerstrom Center with her new show, a celebration of music, dance and ritual.
Downs is one of the most powerful and unique voices that exist today. Downs’ music reflects the cultures of Oaxaca, Mexico, and the U.S., in which she grew up. She sings in Spanish and English, sometimes incorporating indigenous Mixtec, Zapotec and Maya. With a symbolic stage presence and emotional storytelling through song, her singing transcends all language barriers.
Disclosure: I have partnered with Segerstrom Center for this Arts for this post.
Tickets to show start at $42.00
Born and raised in both Oaxaca and Minnesota, Lila Downs is the daughter of a Mixtec Indigenous woman and Anglo-American father.
She has written narratives of Indigenous resistance protecting the original vision of the sacred plants and food of her Oaxacan culture while keeping the traditions of the American continent. A passionate human rights activist, Lila Downs’s lyrics often reflect stories of social injustice and the experiences within the suppressed Latin American stories of women of indigenous and working-class origins.
