Episode 175 features an interview recorded in 2006 with Grammy Award winning Mexican born singer & songwriter Lila Downs who played Womad NZ in 2007. The daughter of an American father and a Mixtecha Indian mother, Lila Downs started her career playing bars and cantinas in Mexico, eventually becoming a huge star in Mexico with a strong back catalogue of albums and awards to her credit. Given Lila hadn’t been informed of the interview it was a cofusing introduction for her to receive a phone call from New Zealand while she was cooking dinner.
