Sound Of "Ranch Jazz" In Cozumel

The sound of "ranch jazz" will fill the island's Moby Dick Center next Friday night, when world-famous Mexican singer, Lila Downs, takes the stage.

Lila's original musical style defies definition, but has been described as a mix of Mexican ranch music, jazz, folk, latin and world beats.

The "Black Magic Women" tour sees Lila performing in New York on Tuesday, before jetting back for what's sure to be a warm island welcome in Cozumel at the end of the week.
