AllMusic Review by

Fusing jazz with a variety of Mexican and Latin American sounds, Lila Downs has created a unique musical style that reflects her multicultural background as well as her talents as a vocalist and composer. El Alma de Lila Downs is a compilation that collects 18 songs from her first five albums for Narada Records, from 1999's La Sandunga to 2006's Cantina: Entre Cope y Copa. (The album was also released under the title The Very Best of Lila Downs.) Selections include "La Cama de Piedra," "Paloma Negra," "Agua de Rosas," "Cielo Rojo," "Un Poco Mas," and many more.
