Lila Downs: La Llorona

When Rick and I were driving through Texas last year listening to Mexican radio, we heard a singer whose voice completely mesmerized me. Although the DJ was announcing the name of every song and performer, he didn’t tell us who this amazing singer was, and I’ve been looking for her ever since.

I think the singer we heard was Lila Downs, singing La Llorona.

Perhaps the song left the DJ speechless.

This is from a concert in Brooklyn in 2008.
