Talking with Latino Musical Legend, Juan Luis Guerra

PRESS PLAY TO LISTEN There's not a lot of people in the world that can say they've sold over 20 million albums and yet many in the United States have never heard of him. His name is Juan Luis Guerra and he is a legend in the Latino music scene. His blend of merengue, salsa, bachata, balada, rock and roll, and even gospel has enchanted fans for over 20 years.

Guerra has won countless awards including nine Latin Grammy Awards, two Grammy Awards, and two Latin Billboard Music Awards and he is quite simply a legend.

I had the opportunity to speak with Guerra in my interview today and found him incredibly humble, gracious and soft-spoken, a real pleasure. In my interview, he discusses his early days as a musician, his dreams as a boy and what it was like to collaborate on his latest album, A Son de Guerra with some of the best.

If you haven't heard Guerra's music before, I think you'll really enjoy his latest. It's romantic, it's fun and it's poignant.
