About the Grant

$20,000 to support Mexican Radio (MAP 2010), an evening length work by composer David Lang.

About the Project

David Lang will create a cycle of songs to be performed by the extraordinary Mexican diva Lila Downs – a singer known for charismatic performances of everything from traditional Mixtec folk songs to high energy art-pop. World renowned eclectic/electric chamber group the Bang on a Can All-Stars provide the musical accompaniment. And Latino public radio DJ, reporter and activist Betto Arcos narrates the evening – a live-audience olde-tyme radio show that relies on a decidedly contemporary and timely global collaboration.
