Singer Lila Downs shares Calavera, a Día de los Muertos celebration of music, dance and ritual. Downs is one of the world’s most singular and powerful voices, whose compelling stage presence and poignant storytelling transcend all language barriers. Raised in Minnesota and Oaxaca, this global superstar’s exquisite artistry bridges traditions from across the Americas, with influences ranging from the folk and ranchera music of Mexico and South America to North American folk, jazz, blues and hip-hop.

Calavera is a community-oriented event and audience members are encouraged to come dressed in imaginative Día de los Muertos costumes and make-up, to bring remembrances of their loved ones to share in the celebration and to become fully immersed in an evening filled with emotions of love, loss, reconnection, and joy.
