Cuban-born pianist Nachito Herrera moved to Minnesota in 2001, and quickly made a name for himself as a jazz player, composing and performing and with some of the state’s top musicians. In Cuba he studied under Ruben Gonzales of the Buena Vista Social club, and toured with Cubanismo worldwide. KFAI producer Allison Herrera (no relation) explores how Cuban musical traditions influence his playing today.
