Black and white portrait of Magos Herrera

Magos Herrera


”Herrera’s voice lightens to a wry smile as she sings of ideas entangling like ivy growing up a wall. She gets way under the skin of the song, recalling great communicators like Edith Piaf or Billie Holiday.” — NPR

Magos Herrera is one of the most expressive vocalists in the contemporary Latin American jazz scene. Known for her eloquent vocal improvisation and bold style, Mexico-City born Herrera sings in Spanish, English, and Portuguese, blending contemporary jazz with Mexican folk staples, and Latin American melodies and rhythms. She has performed in major venues and jazz festivals around the world with a unique style that has earned critical acclaim from The New York Times, NPR Music and Billboard. 

Herrera brings her latest body of work Aire to The Nimoy, transforming grief and loneliness into a luminous collection of songs representing the healing power of music.
