Magos Herrera celebrates women though a repertoire of Latin-American classics and originals including pieces by Violeta Parra, songs inspired by Alfonsina Storni, among others.
Born in Mexico City and currently based out of New York, Magos is best known for her eloquent vocal improvisation and her singular bold style, which embraces elements of contemporary jazz with Ibero-American melodies and rhythms singing in Spanish, English, and Portuguese. Regarded as one of the most active vocalists in the Latin American jazz scene, she is also a United Nation’s spokesperson for UN Women UNITE, a program promoting the elimination of violence against women, and the UN’s “He For She” campaigns to promote gender equality. Magos will be joined by an all-star ensemble with Luis Perdomo on piano, Sam Minaie on bass, and Alex Kautz on drums.
Join us in celebrating the vital contributions of women in the arts as part of the 2021 International Women Rising Festival. Broadcast live from the historic Academy of Music Theatre, this three-day event weaves together a tapestry of musical performances and conversations with distinguished artists and leaders in gender equity.
