He has collaborated with Puerto Ricans Roy Brown Ramirez, Tito Auger, & Puerto Rican-American Tao Rodriguez-Seeger on Que Vaya Bién, a CD that Jaime Torres Torres of El Nuevo Día (San Juan, PR) calls "one of ten best productions of 2006. Andrew also regularly performs with Ugandan vocalist Omega Bugembe Okello.

Like two exhuberant minstrels, Dromedary's Andrew Reissiger and Rob McMaken weave an intoxicating pastiche of romantic, flamenco-tinged acoustic music that also at times borders on gypsy flavored jazz and world music.
"Tukman's Cueca" for instance is a remarkable flamenco piece that will remind you of the great Paco DeLucia, as McMaken and Reissiger use their instruments not only as lead instruments carrying the main melody, but as a substitute for the percussion as well.
