Mexican jazz singer and National Sawdust 2017-2018 Curator Magos Herrera, assembled an all-star cast of musicians, including Venezuelan pianist Edward Simon’s trio (with Adam Cruz, drums, and Joe Martin, bass) alongside Argentine musician Pedro Aznar, to create a tribute to Argentine singer-songwriter Mercedes Sosa, known as “The Voice of Latin America.” These musicians revisited some of Sosa’s most beloved hits, which spearheaded the rise of the nueva canción (new song) movement in Latin America in the 1960s and 1970s.
