OK, SonMo,
I was totally going to make fun of you for thinking you had to tell us who Lila Downs is! Till I read all the other comments. Sheesh, you guys! She's brilliant, isn't she? I listen to all her albums. L* taught her medle of This Land is Your Land in her Latin@ studies class last year.

Back when we lived in Hell (ohio) we saw her perform there, to a crowd which included everyone from Mejicano migrant workers, to white lesbians, to people who only knew her music from "FRIDA" and kept trying to shush everyone when she was singing "La Llorona." A great time! L* and I started dancing and the vaquero behind us called out, "estan mejicanas" and made our little pocha hearts glow with happiness.
