Juan Luis Guerra

Juan Luis Guerra, born June 7, 1957 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, is a prominent singer, composer and music producer. His influence on Latin and Caribbean music has made him an iconic and respected figure on the international music scene.

Guerra began his musical career at an early age, studying music at the Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo and later at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. His diverse musical background allowed him to fuse a variety of genres, including merengue, bachata, salsa, jazz and Dominican folk music, resulting in a unique and fresh sound.
