Latin Grammy nominee producer, guitarist and songwriter, Juancho Herrera is part of a wave of extraordinary Latin American musicians who’ve transformed the New York music scene in recent decades. He’s carved out a singular path with a highly personal synthesis of jazz and South American sounds. With his fourth album Gaviero, the Colombian-born string wizard, delivers a striking concept album that is both a sumptuous sonic journey and a vivid visual feast. Herrera has created a countercultural multimedia experience that combines a beloved Latin American literary source, a keen-eyed photographer/designer, and a gifted international cast of musical explorers. Inspired by Maqroll El Gaviero, a beloved character by poet Álvaro Mutis, Gaviero is the work of an artist eagerly investigating breathtaking new sonic territory. Herrera has been an essential collaborator with some of the era’s definitive voices in jazz and world music, such as Claudia Acuña, Marta Gomez, Lila Downs, and Sofia Rei. He’s performed and recorded with international heavyweights such as Mercedes Sosa, The Chieftains, Branford Marsalis, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Alejandro Sanz, and Idan Raichel. With Gaviero, Herrera has once again brought together players, images, and music to create something evocative of realms glanced at but not seen, whispered about but not heard.He will be joined on stage by Manu Koch on piano, Bam Rodriguez on bass and Franco Pinna on drums....
