HARRISON, N.Y. -- You can celebrate Cinco de Mayo a little early when Mexican singer-songwriter Lila Downs performs at Purchase College in Harrison on Saturday night.
The Grammy-winning singer fuses traditional and contemporary Mexican songs with blues, jazz, soul and African roots to create her own unique sound. The New York Times has called her work "modern Mexican pop with a thrilling, chameleonic voice at its center."
Downs will perform at the PepsiCo Theater at 8 p.m. Tickets are $27.50 to $42.50 and can be purchased online .
