9-11th March 2007 .Botanic Park. Adelaide.

Lila Downs .

     I wasn't too struck by Ms Downs, I am not really a fan of Mexican music so I suppose I would not be greatly struck by her output . Lila has a strong voice, I just did not feel moved by her performances .I tried for about half a set and then gave up, I liked the band, I felt almost as if the music suffered from a split personality, the songs would start in traditional Mexican mode, then the band would go into a jazzy section ( which I really liked ) and then they would go back into the original genre. The harp player was very impressive, but overall I still wasn't smitten. I actually preferred her when she sang during the All Star Jam and Woman's Voice shows .
