"Oscar Hernández - Doing it From The Heart by John Child 03/06/05"

John Child spoke to Oscar Hernández, musical director and co-producer of the Grammy Award winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra, on the eve of the band's sellout concert featuring Rubén Blades at London's Royal Festival Hall on July 26th 2004. Oscar gave generously of his time to discuss his milestone studded career, which has included stints with Ismael Miranda, Pete "El Conde" Rodríguez, Grupo Folklorico y Experimental Nuevayorquino, Libre, Ray Barretto, Rubén Blades and Seis del Solar, Luis "Perico" Ortiz, Johnny Pacheco and Paul Simon, among others. He talks frankly about the fulfillment and challenges of leading the Spanish Harlem Orchestra and sets those critics who have put down the band for sounding dated and playing unoriginal material straight on his vision. He also shares his heartfelt views about the pitfalls of producing music for the wrong reasons...

"Robby Ameen"

In the time that Robby Ameen has spent living in New York City since the early eighties he has compiled a recording career stretching from Dizzy Gillespie to Paul Simon, while maintaining a more than fifteen year relationship with Latin luminaries Ruben Blades and Dave Valentin. Although he is of Lebanese origin, Robby is best known for the unique and powerful Afro-Cuban style he has created.

"About Ralph Irizarry"

Ralph Irizarry, recognized worldwide as an excellent percussionist, first fell in love with the timbal at an early age when his father coincidentally brought home a set received as payment for a debt. A self-taught musician, Irizarry has developed a highly efficient and personalized style of playing while leaving an enduring mark on the artists with whom he has collaborated. His love for the instrument evolved into a full-fledged passion that has fueled his career since 1970. Irizarry admits, without reservation, that this passion has been all consuming since he was a youngster, and is the same passion that he infuses now into his music. -
