Together with his band 4.40, Juan Luis Guerra continues to bring the flavorful rhythms of his native Dominican Republic to the forefront, most recently heard on his 2021 live album Entre Mar y Palmeras, and prior to that on his 2019 album Literal, which he previously described to Billboard “as something new and very modern.”
In the midst of the pandemic, the Dominican singer-songwriter commemorated a remarkable trajectory that spans more than 35 years and has transcended generations with his fresh merengue, amorous bachata, and inspirational lyrics.
