Grammy- and Latin Grammy-winning singer and activist Lila Downs has built a career connecting the folk and indigenous music of Mexico to both contemporary music genres and modern social movements. Her latest cumbia-infused release, Al Chile, explores themes of pleasure and pain, suffering and redemption, through the metaphor of Mexico’s ubiquitous chili pepper.
