READ NPR’S FIVE QUESTIONS WITH MAGOS HERRERA

"Magos Herrera, the smoky-voiced jazz singer from Mexico, practically whispers the verses, their poetic images swirling...she gets way under the skin of the song, recalling great communicators like Edith Piaf or Billie Holiday. And she's backed by Brooklyn Rider, a string quartet of boundless imagination."
