Neighborhood Concert: Lila Downs

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 18-02-2012 18-02-2012 15 Neighborhood Concert: Lila Downs Mexican-American singer-songwriter Lila Downs digs into the earthy indigenous culture of Mexico and taps into the deep wells of music traditions across the world, from blues and soul to African root and klezmer. Yet the constant thread winding throughout her aesthetic is the overwhelming, intense outpouring of emotions, perceptible in any language she sings in, whether Spanish, Portuguese, English, French, Mixtec, Nauhatl, Mayan, or Zapotec. Downs performs songs from her newest album set to release early 2012, "Pecados y Milagros" ("Sins and Miracles"), in which she searches for symbols that give us strength during life's struggles and pursuits. After or before the concert, join the museum's Super Sabado celebration with free exhibitions, art-making workshops, film screenings, and spoken-word recitals. RSVP for the concert is strongly suggested: RSVP online and bring your printed RSVP with you to the event. RSVPs will be honored up until 30 minutes before the show. After this time, all guests will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=102117 El Museo del Barrio true DD/MM/YYYY
