Juan Luis Guerra: “Guavaberry” (1987)

If you’re unfamiliar with the work of Guerra, he’s one of the Dominican Republic’s most talented purveyors of merengue and bachata music, having produced dozens of melodic, irresistible dance tunes and ballads that just drip with romance. Guerra has collected 2 Grammys, 9 Latin Grammys and countless other awards. The Dominican senate has even declared him the ‘National Singer/Songwriter’.

No single song can adequately depict or summarize his career, but “Guavaberry” is certainly one of his most beloved merengue anthems.
