Today is singer, song writer, and producer, Juan Luis Guerra’s birthday! The Grammy-Award winning Dominican artist was born on June 7, 1957 and turned 61 today. He is without a doubt, one of the most successful Latino artists of all time with more than 30 million albums sold and 18 Latin Grammy Awards, two Grammy Awards, and two Latin Billboard Music Awards under his belt. His music never gets old and will probably always hold a special place in our nostalgic hearts. Here’s a look at some of his best songs we’ll never stop listening to.
“Requiem Sobre el Jaragua (Le Dien Dinamita)”
If you grew up listening to Juan Luis Guerra—especially if you’re Dominican—chances are you remember your parents playing his songs with his group 440 on the regular. They most likely had “Requiem Sobre El Jaragua (Le Dien Dinamita)” on repeat.
