The album reached sixth place in sales in Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Spain and several Latin American countries.

Listen to Ojo De Culebra by Lila Downs on Deezer. Lila Downs 01-01-2008. Total duration:48 min. 01. Ojo De Culebra. Composers: Lila Downs - Paul Cohen.
Her 2008 album Ojo de Culebra (also released as Shake Away ) is dominated by her trademark fusion of influences and featured guest appearances by La Mari, Raul Midón, Mercedes Sosa, Enrique Bunbury, and Gilberto Gutierrez.
But duets and collaboration aren't the only focus of this album; in fact, it's a sprawling set of tunes whose reach is almost limitless: "Silent Thunder" employs both reggae and funk but combines them with traditionally informed Mixtec chants. The skittering, scattershot blues of "Minimum Wage" offers a new element in Downs' recorded vocabulary - with great guitar work by Ken Basman and Juancho Herrera.
