If anyone is going to be in Vancouver the night of July 3rd, Id like to make an entertainment suggestion. Lila Downs will be performing at the Commodore Ballroom.
She is an incredible singer from Oaxaca, Mexico whose band is from all over the planet.
We saw her perform last summer in Portland and both of us felt it was one of the three or four best concerts of our lives.
Lila sings in Spanish, English, French, Mayan, Zapotek and Mixtek. ( Please excuse my spelling on the two Native American groups' names.)
She is most famous for her performances in the acclaimed film "Frida" based on the life of Frida Kalo. You won't be sorry if you attend this amazing event.
