The Dominican artist, Juan Luis Guerra, today kicked off the Sancti Petri Concert Music Festival (Cádiz, south), which was the first of the six concerts that the singer will give in Spain as part of his international tour Between Sea and Palm Trees 2022.
Accompanied by his inseparable 440 orchestra, the Caribbean artist has offered the Cadiz public a powerful show full of new songs but also great hits such as “La Bilirubina” or “Quisiera ser un pez”.
The one in Sancti Petri, in Chiclana de la Frontera (Cádiz), has been the only and exclusive live performance that the international artist is going to offer in all of Andalusia, so the expectation was maximum among an audience that has given itself completely to what that Guerra has offered them on stage.
The sound of the waves of the sea, the squawking of the seagulls and a spectacular video that has been projected on the screens located around the stage have served to fully introduce the public to a Caribbean atmosphere that has exploded with the first sounds of “Rosalía “, song with which he has started his show and that has been very danced.
The calm, after several rhythmic songs that have served to move the skeleton of the entire auditorium, has arrived with “Pambiche de Novia”, a ballad that the Caribbean artist dedicated to his wife, to immediately return with a salsa medley, where his classic “Carta de Amor” was included, from his album “Bachata Rosa” (1990).
With a spectacular play of lights, an interesting visual proposal and the tireless strength of the 440 orchestra, Juan Luis Guerra has shown that his music, with bachata, merengue and salsa rhythms, continue to arouse passions, proof of which has been a dedicated audience who hasn’t stopped dancing each and every one of his songs.
In a concert inspired by his most recent albums “Entre Mar Y Palmeras” and “Privé”, there was also time to recall some of his most universal hits that catapulted him to world fame such as “Quisiera ser un pez”, one of the most chanted by the public, “Like a bee to the honeycomb”, and a melodic version of “I hope it rains coffee in the field”, which has silenced an enthusiastic audience.
After the encore, the artist reviewed some of the songs from his album “Bachata Rosa”, considered the most successful of his long career, which has been highly praised by the public.
For a little over an hour and a half, Guerra has given a powerful first concert in Spain, with electrifying lighting and an intense rhythm that has not allowed spirits to wane at any time and has closed with his super hit “La bilirubina”.
Master of merengue, bachata and bolero, Juan Luis Guerra has established himself as one of the essential names in music in Spanish, with more than 30 million records sold throughout his career, in addition to 27 Latin Grammys and 2 Grammy, among the many distinctions achieved.
After Chiclana, the artist will have another five concerts in the cities of Valencia, Murcia, Bilbao, Barcelona and will finish his Spanish tour in Madrid on the 10th of this month.
