Description

Dr Hernández is the latest project by Sally Ford and Patrick Cronin, who have together and separately have led bands such as Texicali Rose, The Ennio Morricone Experience and Sally Ford and the Pachuco Playboys. Also five out of six members are regular players with the Aria award-winning Melbourne Ska Orchestra.

8 Remedios is a uniquely Melbourne take on Colombian cumbia, NuYoRican boogaloo, Cuban son and funky reggae with a healthy dose of electronica, clav-driven grooves, soulful horns, percussion and Sally Ford’s trademark soaring vocals in Spanish and English. All eight tracks are original compositions except for a cover of El Pescador, originally recorded by Colombian artist Totó La Momposina. Many of the tunes are in Spanish but it’s The Little Things, Caliente and Dig this Boogaloo are sung in English.
