Lila Downs & Dayanara Torres Among 2019 Latin Academy Leading Ladies
By: LEILA COBO

“Latin Grammy and Grammy winner Lila Downs, actress Dayanara Torres, audio engineer, and producer Maria Elisa Ayerbe and music executives Luana Pagani and Elsa Yep will be honored as this year’s Leading Ladies of Entertainment by the Latin Academy.

All five will be feted during a private celebration taking place Nov. 12 in Las Vegas, two days prior to the Latin Grammys.

This marks the third year the Academy has recognized ‘professional and socially conscious women within the arts and entertainment fields who have made significant contributions, inspiring the next generation of female leaders.’ As ever, the Academy has chosen a mix of artists, executives and producers with influence in the industry. Downs, aside from her music, is known for her social activism, as is Torres. Ayerbe is one of the few active female producers in the Latin world. Pagani is the current president and partner of Seitrack US, while Yep is the CFO and EVP of Operations for Universal Music Latin America & Iberian Penninsula.”
