New York, August 21, 2015.- On tuesday, August 25th, 8pm at Subrosa (from the owners of the Blue Note) the Venezuelan singer-songwriter Juancho Herrera will showcase his recently-released CD, El Mismo Sol, as part of the monthlymusical series Guataca Nights.
Juancho Herrera continually surprises his audience with his unique harmonic innovations, music inspired by the nature of conflict that broaches topics as varied as politics and intimacy. Each song highlights Juancho’s particular trademark, defined by South American soul. Humor, frankness and poetry are woven throughout the lyrics of each piece, further accompanied with harmonies resembling the blues.All this cultivates Juancho’s singular sound, along with help from Chilean batterist Yayo Serkac (Lila Downs), French bassist Ben Zwerin (Angelique Kidjo) and Isreali trombonist Rafi Malkiel.
