In 2003 Ibrahim released his second solo album for World Circuit, 'Buenos Hermanos,' an album that is firmly rooted in tradition but at the same time expands the horizons of Cuban music with it's varied repertoire, or as Ry Cooder simply put it 'I think the album's a goddam classic.'  The album received almost universal praise, going on to win both GRAMMY and Latin Grammy awards. – Press Release

“Buenos Hermanos is a feast of boleros delivered with flair by Ferrer, who intuitively conjures up the elegance and languid energy of that post-war singing style. Yet his assured renditions are full of freshness, not least on classics like "Perfume de Gardenias" which features the surprising yet cosy crooning of the Blind Boys of Alabama. Jon Hassell's trumpet on "Fuiste Cruel" is subtly contemporary while the breezy Boliviana, a track originally written by Valdés back in the 70s, brightens the mix with a pop spin. Demetrio Muñiz's orchestral arrangement on "Mil Congojas" is a luscious counterpoint to the gritty guitars of Cooder and Galbán.” – BBC
