New York-based Grammy-nominated Mexican singer and composer, Magos Herrera has been busy during 2021, making new music, and continuing her musical journey, putting together elements from realms like chamber music, jazz, and Latin American roots and influences.
And she is coming to present in an intimate concert, a tasting of these multiple sound flavors, exploring the fusion of a string quartet and a jazz ensemble, joined by a string quartet drawn from members of the orchestral collective The Knights. “Remanso,” (Backwater) is a musical scrapbook Herrera composed during COVID-19 isolation. In this conversation with Magos Herrera, we catch up on what she has been working while in isolation, so even there were no live concerts, the music has never stop flowing.
The program will include new arrangements commissioned by Americas Society, songs included in the 2020 album Con Alma, and new original music written by Herrera with support from a Chamber Music Americas New Jazz Works grant.
Magos Herrera is having her show at Bombyx, Center for Arts and Equity in Florence, MA, on February 11, 2022 at 7:00 PM. Tickets are available at bombyx.live
This program is also supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
