In her return to the National Sawdust stage, Magos Herrera Quartet – as well as a string quartet comprised of members of the orchestral collective The Knights – will present "Remanso" with music that Herrera produced during the COVID-19 isolation.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
In her return to the National Sawdust stage, Magos Herrera Quartet – as well as a string quartet comprised of members of the orchestral collective The Knights – will present "Remanso" with music that Herrera produced during the COVID-19 isolation. “Remanso” in English translates into “backwater,” a remote or isolated place. It can mean the flow of a river that runs slowly or stops. Humanity has experienced a pause for the last year and a half due to COVID-19 pandemic. Isolation, loss, grieving; but, also a space to reflect on the unconscious inertia of our daily lives, the constant anticipation mindsets, exhaustion and separation from what is essential as individuals and as societies. For Herrera, it was a gate to transit a personal pilgrimage to ground where her voice belongs, to continue nurturing a musical path filled with purpose and an invitation to create a conscious, truer connection with the world. This performance is possible thanks to the support for Herrera from Chamber Music Americas New Jazz Works.
New York-based, Grammy-nominated, Mexican singer and composer Magos Herrera is one of the most expressive, beautiful voices in the contemporary Latin American jazz scene. Herrera is best known for her eloquent vocal improvisation and her bold style, which embraces elements of contemporary jazz with Latin American melodies and rhythms, in a style that elegantly blends boundaries.
