Nachito Herrera and the Universals featuring Raul Pineda and Karen Briggs

Nacho Universals

Transportive Piano and Cuban Rhythms

KBEM Raul Pineda's journey to becoming one of the world's most innovative Latin drummers has taken him from growing up in the meager streets of Old Havana, Cuba to the international stage. Along the way, Raul has garnered three Grammy nominations and a 2000 Grammy Award for Best Latin Jazz Performance with the Chucho Valdés Quartet album, Live at the Village Vanguard. As a young boy, Raul scoured his Havana neighborhood for anything that could be used to create drums. He used metal rods driven into the ground to support used cooking oil cans, and formed drum sticks from the branches of orange trees. Raul was influenced by the local rumbero street bands, and at the urging of his musician grandfather, Nefer Miguel Milanés, Raul went on to study classical percussion for several years. He then immersed himself in Afro-Cuban music. By age 19, Raul was performing and recording with some of the leading Cuban ensembles and bandleaders, including Sentisis, and pianist Chucho Valdés. Over the next several years, international tours and Grammy-nominated recordings brought Raul to the music world's attention as one of Cuba's most influential young drummers. Karen Brigg's near four decade span through genres as a violinist includes an eclectic range and fusion of world musical influences. All mostly linked by improvisation and embellishment, her audio visual signature has become popular and sought after for a variety of live events and recorded projects both domestic and international. Karen appears as a feature in twelve music video concerts, hundreds of featured guest recordings and has recorded four solo projects. With her combined experiences, Karen continues to develop original music while seeking continued expansion and development of the contemporary violin sound. Karen has also conducted improvisational violin workshops as an artist-in-residency at: Berklee Music College, The Kennedy Center and The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. In an effort to encourage the evolution of the instrument’s use in contemporary music and advocating the preservation of music in American public schools, Karen has been an inspiration to many.
