Fonseca beaches of the DR ideal setting for his new video

The Colombian singer-songwriter shared the news in a post in which he also highlights his appreciation for the country.

Celebrated Colombian singer-songwriter Fonseca has confirmed on his social networks that the beaches of Bayahibe were the perfect setting for filming his new video “Pedacito de playa”, which will officially premiere this Thursday, June 27.

“I have a deep affection for the Dominican Republic,” expresses the artist video he posted on his Instagram account.

“I have been very much inspired by the whole musical theme. Juan Luis Guerra, I’ve said it a million times, has therefore been one of my greatest influences and one of the most important chapters of my career is to have been able to sing with Juan Luis,” exclaimed Fonseca before continuing to express his admiration for the Dominican culture and the beautiful landscapes of the country.

A second production

A month ago, “Con dinero & sin dinero” was released, a music video by Grupo Niche in collaboration with Fonseca that was also filmed on the same beach.

“The beaches are amazing,” said Fonseca in the video. “Well, look at what we have back here. It really is a paradise and that’s why we said we want to record these two songs. We want to do it in the Dominican Republic, where we are going to find a paradise to be the context of our songs and that’s why we are here.”

A career dedicated to music

For more than two decades Fonseca has been dedicated to creating memorable pieces in which he combines pop sensibilities with Colombian folk rhythms. During that time the Colombian singer-songwriter has produced 10 studio albums, one live album and an impressive number of singles and collaborations with other artists.

Throughout his career Fonseca has received numerous awards and recognitions, including:

  • Three Latin Grammy Awards for Best Tropical Song (2006, 2016 and 2023).
  • Two Latin Grammy Awards for best traditional pop vocal album (2014 and 2020).
