Produced by himself in N.Y.C., Aquí Conmigo became the first solo record by Andy Andy (born Angel Villalona). The 11-track record comprises songs from the traditional Dominican folk music to the contemporary bachata, covering Ricardo Montaner's "Bésame," and two songs composed by Mexican top-selling artist Marco Antonio Solis -- "Boca de Angel" and "Yo Te Necesito." A tango-inflected "Alma Rota," written by Carlos Dalmasi, and the Mexican traditional-sounding "Amor Doloroso" emerge as proof of Andy Andy's experimental side, which enriches the classic form of the legendary bachata.
