Dominican Singer Juan Luis Guerra said today that he is negotiating a duet with the ‎Colombian singer Juanes and announced that starting in March he will arrive in South ‎America with “La Travesía Tour”.‎ The performer of “Ojalá Que Llueva Café” stated that he has already spoken with Juanes ‎and he may also record a single with the Dominican band Aventura.‎ Guerra, the most international of the Dominican artists, made these statements during a ‎busy press conference in which he provided details about the concert to be held on ‎February 14th in Santo Domingo, during his tour.‎ The artist said he likes to innovate, that many new things can be done with music, and ‎that the best is “yet to come.”‎ The performer reiterated that he has no interest in entering politics and that with the ‎foundation that carries his name he has “more than enough.”‎ However, he said he respects artists who enter the political world, among them the ‎Panamanian singer Ruben Blades, who according to the Dominican is doing a “good” job ‎as the head of the Ministry of Tourism of his country.‎ Despite the fact that he stays away from politics, Guerra asked the local authorities to ‎focus on the areas of health and education in the country, and said that he is worried ‎about justice.‎ The award-winning singer also mentioned the economic crisis, particularly the local ‎situation, but assured that his country will “get over” the situation.‎ Regarding the upcoming February 14 concert, Juan Luis Guerra promised that it will be ‎‎“very special,” like those he performed in the United States and Europe.‎ In the concert he will sing the most popular singles he recorded with his inseparable band ‎‎440, and will include about seven from his most recent production “La Llave de mi ‎Corazón.”‎ The artist said that “La Travesía Tour,” an artistic production based on “La Llave de mi ‎Corazón,” is a show in which people “feel very good, where they cry tears of happiness ‎and where they have a good time.”‎ In March the artist will continue “La Travesía Tour” in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and ‎Paraguay, among other countries.‎ Juan Luis Guerra has sold over 20 million albums in his artistic career and was awarded ‎many prizes, including two Grammy Awards.‎ Last year the performer was named Artist for Peace by the United Nations Educational, ‎Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).‎
