Alexandra’s charmingly sweet voice adds depth and romance to her bachata songs. Daniel Moncion melds traditional salsa music with bachata inspired guitar sounds to form catchy, move-your-feet tunes.

Alexandra is best known as half of the hugely successful, Monchy y Alexandra, who began singing together in 1999. They have been often credited with being instrumental in popularizing bachata music outside of the Dominican Republic. Alexandra is now embarking on a highly anticipated solo career, and is certain not to disappoint.

Daniel Monción is a singer hailing from the Dominican Republic whose guitar heavy bachata inspired tunes have earned him critical acclaim in the Latin music world. With Monción’s albums Ya Me Cansé and Decidi, which spawned the hit single “Culpable,” have established this up and coming Latin sensation as one to watch.
