Dominican singer Andy Andy has emerged as one of a handful of musicians on the cutting edge of the bachata craze, beginning with his debut album, Aqui Conmigo. Infused with traditional Dominican folk music and contemporary bachata, Andy juxtaposes new and old sounds to reach a wide audience. With his sophomore album, Necesito un Amor, he was nominated for the Latin Grammy award for Best Contemporary Tropical Album. Andy Andy has topped the Billboard’s Top Tropical Albums charts with Ironia, which featured Andy Andy’s staple sounds – guitar and percussion driven, mid-tempo bachata rhythms and his mellifluous vocals that bring it all together. Its hit single, “Que Ironia” was multi-formatted as a ballad and in bachata and reggaeton styles. Andy Andy’s success continued with the album Tu Me Haces Falta with his latest, Placer y Castiga peaking in the top 20 on the Billboard’s Tropical Album chart.

Aventura’s Henry Santos is stepping into new territory with his premiere as a solo artist at SummerStage. Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Santos had an interest in music since he was a child and further developed this passion when he moved to the United States at age 14. As “a diehard music fanatic,” Santos has helped Aventura achieve phenomenal international success as a singer and composer. His compositions have secured Aventura as one of the most recognizable names in bachata music worldwide, catering to young Latinos in the US as well as audiences across Europe and Latin America. His hybrid “bachata with R&B, hip-hop and big-city attitude” sound has created a “juggernaut,” according to The New York Times. With a successful track record with Aventura, Santos solo debut is highly anticipated by numerous fans.

Bachata Heightz

Presented in Association with Globe Star Media and La Mega.

Born and raised in Washington Heights, Jerry Garcia, Jonathan Garcia, Jeffrey Cruz, Aneudy Hernandez and Diego Capellan formed Bachata Heightz to explore their musical interests while staying off the streets. The group was inspired by the tropical music of their Dominican roots as well as hip-hop and R&B. Combining these varying sounds, Bachata Heightz created urban bachata, which highlights their Latin heritage yet incorporates modern beats. As one of the first pioneers of this unique sound, they showcased it on their recording debut with Hector Acosta on “Me Puedo Matar,” which reached the top five on the Billboard Latin Tropical chart. Soon after, they released their inaugural full-length album, The First featuring the singles “Te Busco” and “No Sabes Del Amor,” becoming one of most influential groups in the Latin music scene.

Fast Five’s Tego Calderón rocked the house in a New York City park, performing all his classic songs and shaking hands with dozens of fans – all at no cost.

El “Abayalde” put on quite a show Saturday in Washington Heights’ Highbridge Park for hundreds of fans, young and old, who were all dancing and excited to see the reggaetonero do what he does best.

“It’s a very nice initiative,” Calderón told Fox News Latino after his show at a community concert series called “Sábados de verano” (Summer Saturdays).

Calderón, 39, says giving his fans his best is his top priority.

“It’s thanks to them I have all these opportunities” both in music and film, the rap star said.

“This event was a perfect fit for me, because I have many fans who won’t go to a club to see me. So events like this allow for them to come see me perform, the mothers and the grandparents,” he said. “It really satisfies me to see the kids enjoying this too. Thanks to their parents they know of me and my music because, let’s be real, I came out a while back for kids today to know my songs and they were singing them and that’s thanks to their parents.”
