Cuba’s hottest salsa act has to be Manuel Hernandez. Better known as “El Medico de la Salsa” (The doctor of salsa), a name bestowed upon him by Jose Luis Cortes, leader of NG La Banda, and the one that helped launch his new career.

A graduate of medical sciences at the University in his native Havana, Manolin, as he is affectionately called, was singing here and there, when he was picked up to tour Mexico as part of a group. After his return, he realized that his true love was music, not necessarily medicine. So he put together his own 12 piece band, and as the saying goes, the rest is history.

Within 2 years he had won the heart and soul of the Cuban masses, attracting as many as 90,000 fans to one of his concerts and is being acclaimed for both his presence on stage and his brand of music, one that can be best described as “salsa callejera” (street music).

All the songs on this album were composed by Manolin, and incredibly, 5 of the songs promptly became top singles in Cuba. One of them, “La Bola”,was on the Cuban Hit Parade for an incredible 54 weeks, the biggest commercial success in Cuba of the past 50 years.prescription of hyper-salsa from the doctor….. you’ll soon be on your way to recovery!
