    The sonic evolution of Rebeca Suarez
      On October 19, the Egyptian Theatre filled with people eager to hear the incomparable Mixtec diva, Lila Downs. Rumors of her mahogany voice and hypnotic presence spilled from row to row until a lithe figure stepped into the hot stage lights. Her raven hair was slicked into a tight bun, the cut of her cheekbones just slightly dulled by the darkness of her eyes. She sat on a stool with her guitar and introduced herself as Rebeca Suarez. In those few words, the texture of her voice commanded our silence. It was soft, exceedingly soft, like music even before she sang. But beneath its delicacy was sculpted power, and though Downs' performance was riveting, Suarez' sincerity and simple style struck a deeper chord.
