8 Creative Talents From The Dominican Republic You Should Know
Juan Luis Guerra
Juan Luis Guerra, born in Santo Domingo in 1957, has received a seemingly endless list of awards highlighting his success in the music industry, including 15 Latin Grammy Awards, two Grammy Awards and two Latin Billboard Music Awards (to name but a few). He cannot quite be characterized by one music style, and combines a medley of sounds including salsa, merengue, gospel and even rock-and-roll, to continually produce hit after hit. Whilst his most popular tunes are recorded in Spanish, one of which is Ojalá Que Llueva Café, I wish it would rain coffee, Guerra also performs songs in English, such as Medicine for My Soul. He showcases his talents behind the scenes too, and often works as a music producer and composer for other artists.
