Cubanismo Hour with Grammy Nominated Latin Jazz Pianist. A great opportunity to meet and visit with Nachito Herrera. Widely recognized as a young genius, Ignacio "Nachito" Herrera stunned Cuban audiences at the age of twelve, performing Rachmaninoff's Concerto No. 2 with the Havana Symphony Orchestra. His love of classical music quickly combined with traditional Cuban rhythms under the instruction of the Cuban masters-Rubén González, Jorge Gomez Labraña, and Frank Fernández. In his twenties, Nachito became the musical director at the famous "Tropicana" in Cuba where he continued to deepen his repertoire. In the late 1990's, Nachito joined the famed Cubanismo as its lead pianist, arranger, and musical director while cultivating a passion,talent and reputation in Latin Jazz; a striking influence in his music today. Nachito has been described as ‘hotter than the burning tip of a contraband Cuban cigar.’ Nachito Herrera blends traditional jazz, Latin jazz and classical music into his own vibrant musical style
