La Cumbia del Mole by Lila Downs with Artwork by Mitzi Linn
Paintings in the video are by me, Mitzi, Kate Corbett and Rudolfo Morales. I met Kate and Rudolfo in Oaxaca. Kate's work-- 2 water colors-- realistic chilis/onions in dishes on a table, and a red table with lily in green pottery pitcher. Rudolfo's painting is a red city scene with feminine figures. All other paintings or collages are by Mitzi Linn
