Mexican Artists Perform at Charity Concert for Earthquake Victims

MEXICO CITY – Singer Lila Downs and other artists, including Susana Harp and Aida Cuevas, performed at a fundraising concert in Oaxaca for victims of the magnitude-8.2 earthquake that hit southern Mexico on Sept. 7.

The “Oaxaca Corazon” (Oaxaca Heart) concert took place Sunday at Guelaguetza Auditorium in Oaxaca city, the capital of the like-named southern state.

The roster of artists performing included Eugenia Leon, Tania Libertad, Filippa Giordano, Natalia Toledo, Mardonio Carballo, Grupo Raices and Alejandra Robles.

The performers led the audience in singing the traditional Mexican theme “La llorona,” which got huge applause.

The Oaxaca-born Downs, one of the organizers of the charity concert, performed “Mezcalito” and “La Sandunga,” among other songs.

The admission charge was between 100 pesos and 500 pesos ($6 to $30), with the funds going to assist earthquake victims.

The temblor was the strongest in Mexico since 1932 and killed at least 98 people, including 78 in Oaxaca, 16 in Chiapas and four in Tabasco.
