Biography

A dazzling, accomplished singer-songwriter and known for her beguiling rhythmic scatting, inflected with soulful Latin-Andalusian phrasings, Magos Herrera is known for her signature sound that elegantly blends her classic jazz styling with Mexican, Cuban and Brazilian melodies. Fluent in Spanish, Portuguese and English, her repertoire is filled with the yearning romance, intimacy and enchantment of Mexican and Cuban sones and boleros, and sultry, languid samba-bossa nova beats.

“Magos manages to create a new style of Latin scat. It is innovative but clearly jazz and when she does her improvisations off the composed melodies it is a mind-blowing experience.” ~ Rudy Garcia, Miami Herald, 11/19/2005

Based in NYC since 2007, she has recorded with Saxophonist Tim Ries for the Rolling Stones Jazz Project and for contemporary composer Paola Prestini for John Zorn label. For over 10 years Magos has performed in international arts centers, at festivals and concert halls such as Lincoln Center, NYC, Millennium Park in Chicago, Knitting Factory, Teatro de la Ciudad de Mexico, and Sala Galileo Galilei in Madrid. She has 4 CD recordings including “Orchideas Susurrantes,” “Pais Maravilla” and “Todo Puede Inspirar,” 2 international compilations for Brazil and Japan, and is part of the acclaimed “Mexican Divas” CD series.
