Lila Downs was in town during the week of South By Southwest for a fundraiser and meet-and-greet event. The Mexican singer-songwriter and Latin Grammy winner answered questions about her music, her inspirations and she even serenaded the audience, if ever so briefly. The event was a fundraiser organized by Wahaka Mezcal to benefit schools in San Dionisio Ocotepec, Oaxaca, the Mexican town where the company’s mezcal is produced. The fundraiser took place at Malverde in downtown Austin.
