I discuss the use of gauge/gravity duality in computing hydrodynamic dispersion relations for strongly coupled plasmas. I present recent work which has extended the computation of the sound mode dispersion relation up to third order in the momentum of the perturbation. Resulting formulas for the speed of sound, bulk viscosity, as well as some second order transport coefficients are presented for a specific class of gravity duals.
