19/20 Artist-in-Residence: Lila Downs

The Brownstein Residency for Artistic Innovation links notable visiting artists to the Penn and Philadelphia communities with a focus on interdisciplinary work and experiences for broad audiences. The 19/20 season Artist-in-Residence will be Grammy® and Latin Grammy® Award-winning vocalist and global superstar, Lila Downs. This Oaxaca-born and Minnesota-raised singer has curated several performances as part of her residency, expanding our The Philadelphians: Migrations That Made Our City series with a spotlight on one of Philadelphia’s largest current immigrant groups – Mexican Americans. Through these performances, campus workshops and more local outreach activities, we’ll explore how this population has reshaped the city and added greatly to Philadelphia’s culture and community traditions.
