“The Dakota is my musical house. I cannot live without the Dakota” -Nachito Herrera, Star Tribune feature

Ignacio “Nachito” Herrera is acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest Cuban pianists in command of traditional classical and contemporary musical idioms. Nachito brings astounding technique and natural talent to compose explosive music that overwhelms the Dakota with powerful energy. We at the Dakota love to call him the “man with twenty fingers”, hence the Classical to Cuban pyrotechnics description.
