by Lila Downs
Released: Jun 1999
Label: Cloud People Music
Music fans looking for straightforward ranchera should steer clear of Lila Downs. With her operatic training and penchant for jazzy experimentation, the singer brings piano and stand-up bass to classics like "La Llorona" and even explores heavily regional music in songs like "Yunu Yucu Ninu." A dramatic performer, Downs' only weakness may be taking herself a bit seriously.
