A wildly engaging performer, Lila Downs returns to Calgary with her newest album Salón Deseos y Lagrimas. Lauded in both of her home countries of Mexico and the United States, with multiple GRAMMY Awards under her belt, Lila Downs uses her multicultural vision and her remarkable voice and seamlessly blends blues, jazz, rock, soul and even rap with traditional Mexican music for a truly singular sound.
Daughter of a Mixtec Indian woman and University of Minnesota professor, Downs is inspired by both sides of her heritage making it difficult to categorize her music except to say that it is an exciting fusion of international sounds and musical genres.
The student-organized benefit concert event brings music to the conversation about mental health.

With a legendary voice that embodies the spirit of a nation, Eva Ayllón is one of Peru’s most enduring stars. She’s been called the ‘Tina Turner from Peru’ and the ‘Queen of landó‘ (a traditional Afro-Peruvian musical form) for her larger-than-life stage personality and fearsome dance chops. Infused with colorful sounds and flavors from the coastal plains of Lima, Ayllón’s music overflows with her country’s indigenous, African, and Spanish musical heritage in a style called música criolla, in which call-and-response, complex syncopation, and polyrhythms combine with sweet, melancholic melodies to create a unique and powerful sound.
Bevione estrena esta nueva conferencia en el 2018 hablando de un camino espiritual posible y terrenal. ¿Cómo podemos vivir en paz aún en medio del caos? ¿Existe un destino que cumplir? ¿Hasta dónde llega nuestro poder personal? ¿Hay un pasado que nos determina? ¿Por qué nos enfermamos? Respuestas a preguntas como éstas irán marcando un paso a paso que presentará en esta conferencia, para caminar con más claridad en este mundo, con la visión del espíritu, pero con los pies en la tierra.
