Josephine Foster sings about dreaming, colors, and temples built with beams of cartilage. She was born in Colorado, and has been singing her songs with her gently swooping voice since the early 2000s. Victor Herrero sings in Spanish of doves and horses, while playing powerful rhythms on his acoustic guitar. He was born in La Mancha, Spain, and in 2008 Josephine and Victor were married. For the past year they've been wandering and performing, sharing their music with each other and with audiences around the world. David Garland welcomes them to the WNYC Studio to perform and talk about their music.

Josephine Foster reminds me of Susan Alexander (Charles Foster Kane's off-key girlfriend), but the music is
beautiful and Victor Herrero's delivery is lusty and gentle.

The string work is beautiful but you're kidding with that woman's voice, right? It's a joke, yes? She sounds like a tremulous old woman who can't catch her breath and her pitch is completely nebulous. I have to turn it off now, it just hurts.

Very close to perfection. Beautiful music presented with elegance and restraint. Surely a model of the finest qualities in music broadcasting.
