As part of MIM’s 10th Anniversary in 2020, MIM’s Music Theater will present the Global Masters Series, which celebrates the creativity and musicianship of artists at the pinnacle of their craft. Each performance brings a unique perspective to the question of why music matters, helping us understand the deep connections we all have to music.

Iconic singer Lila Downs, winner of Grammy and Latin Grammy Awards, 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.

On her new album, Al Chile, the famed singer-songwriter pays homage to the chile and the complicated relationship Mexicans have with the fiery fruit that causes them happiness, suffering, sweat and tears.
