She led off with El Mezcalito. <--The linked clip is not from this concert, but gives a good idea of the excitement of seeing her in concert. At the end of the thread, I'll include links for studio versions of some of the songs from the Ferrocarril concert. Her voice, range, and delivery are amazing.
Bixa - what a show of musical talent and stamina!! Thank you so much for bringing us this fabulous concert. Your photos are vibrant and expressive. Thanks so much, I really enjoyed seeing part of what you experienced
Thanks Bixa for bringing us a flavour of that very lively and talented concert. However, as a 'gringo', it is what we used to call Mexican hat music, sorry . It strongly reminded me of an Irish foreman I used to work with. He always wore a battered old hat. At times of stress, while swearing, he would throw the hat down on the ground and do a little Irish jig on it, going round and round. I guess it relieved the tension
Man is not lost, only temporarily uncertain of his position
So, weeks ago I agreed to go to another Lila Downs concert with my friend Claudia, her lovely husband, & her mother whom I've not yet met. The concert was tonight & after doing a bunch of stuff today, I decided to skip the concert.
Just received this picture from Claudia. She's in the green sweater & black jacket ~~

It was an accidental encounter & they all got to meet Lila, plus Claudia got a little kiss from her. Pobre de mí!
