Nicolas Herrera

I´m an Argentinian musician based in Barcelona, Spain. I grew up in San Juan, Argentina, a small city next to the Andes Mountains in the west part of the country. There I began studying classical guitar at age 12, and started playing regular gigs on electric guitar by age 15, after studying for several years at the Music Conservatory of the city. In 2000 I moved to Barcelona to continue my career in music and began writing my own material as well. In 2014 I earned a degree in Jazz Guitar after attending the Escuela Superior de Música de Cataluña, “ESMUC”. As a renowned guitar performer, I´ve had the chance to work as a freelance artist in different kind of music productions in Europe, South America and even China and Costa Rica. Also possess more than fifteen years of progressive experience in guitar teaching. After many years recording and performing as a sideman on many different projects, my debut album, “Kala”, is about to be released. Here it´s been put together an incredibly fine, yet distinctive quintet, assembled with some of the most relevant musicians at the local scene, and very close friend of mine as well! The recorded music goes from some originals songs I wrote sometime ago, plus a few arrangements of mine, which are based on the music of the very well known Argentinian artist Atahualpa Yupanqui. The record, to my point of view, introduces an intimate, warm kind of music, and I believe we achieved an extraordinary sense of comunication at the session

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
