Artist Focus: Juan Luis Guerra

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album.

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

Tune in as we explore the life and music of prolific Dominican musician, songwriter and producer Juan Luis Guerra.

Join Francisco Carrasco as he delves into Guerra’s career as one of the world’s most successful and recognised Latin artists. Guerra is known for popularising bachata music on a global level, although his compositions span across a wide array of genres – from merengue and bolero, to R&B and rock.
