Humito de Copal
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Balas y Chocolate is a personal and urgent album from Lila Downs that could reach a wider public than any of the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter's previous recordings. Downs strikes back at the violence in her native Mexico with biting lyrics set to an almost utopian mix of norteno dance rhythms, cumbia, hip-hop and pop. This is a concept album that speaks brilliantly of a time and place (Mexico 2015), with songs that rise easily to a universal level. Highlights: "Balas y Chocolate," "Humito de Copal," "Cuando Me Tocas Tu."
