Lila Downs dominates the charts, and took a break from her Black Magic Woman tour to talk with Cristina, author of the super-successful TypePad blog Mexico Cooks! In an exclusive chat and photo session, the incredibly talented, beautiful and wildly popular Mexican-American singer Lila (pronounced LEE-lah) shares personal stories, marvelous music, and her thoughts on her newest project: a musical version of popular book and film Like Water For Chocolate.
"I'm really excited about this project." Lila drummed her fingers on the arm of her chair. "So many things about this story remind me of life in Oaxaca, even though the book is set in the north of Mexico. Like Water for Chocolate has already had such huge success as a book and a film! It's just made for the musical stage. The work is a tremendous opportunity for us."
