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.
Created by director and choreographer Gilles Brinas, Che Malambo performs with a dynamic blend of precision footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming, and song which originated in the 17th century in the South American pampas. Danced solely by men, malambo evolved from competitive duels amongst the Argentine gaucho that tested agility, strength, and dexterity. It soon integrated what is now its hallmark, zapateo, the fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. Malambo also features the drumming of traditional Argentine bombos and whirling boleadoras, a throwing weapon made up of intertwined cords and weighted with stones.
The student-organized benefit concert event brings music to the conversation about mental health. Ana D’Aubeterre and Allie DaSilva, members of the WCHS Interact Club, talk about this fundraiser to raise awareness and funds for the Canada Mental Health Association (CMHA) – Calgary Region. The Interact Club aims to raise $10,000.

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.
