Event Description

Ford Signature Series pairs world renowned performers with Los Angeles County artists for one-of-a-kind experiences. Known for her innovative approach to music-making and inventive fusion of international sounds, Grammy® Award-winning Mexican-American singer/songwriter Lila Downs will share the stage with one of Los Angeles’ premier folklorico dance companies, Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company, in a concert showcasing traditional Mexican celebrations from indigenous cultures and regions of Mexico. Lila’s Mixtec Indian heritage infuses her reinterpretations of blues, jazz,  soul, cumbia and rock — even rap and klezmer — with traditional Mexican and native Mesoamerican music, singing in Spanish, English and sometimes even the languages of the Mixtec, Zapotec, Maya and Nahuatl cultures.
Friday, Aug. 12 & Saturday, Aug. 13, both at 8 pm; Ford Theatres, 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East (just off the 101, between Hollywood and Universal Studios in the Cahuenga Pass) Hollywood, CA  90068; $30, $50, $70; (323) 461-3673; www.FordTheatres.org.
