Juan Wauters talks about “Guapa”

“Puerto Rico was one of the first destinations I visited on my early trips to Latin America. Puerto Ricans are great hosts in their island. They like to show their culture to visitors. One day I was out with friends and they took me to Charco Azul in Guavate. On our way up we stopped to eat lechón (grilled pork). At the restaurant there was a duo playing boleros. I had heard this music since my childhood but I had never seen it in its original context. That music then made a great impact in me. A couple of days after, I came up with the repetitive melody that ended up being the main refrain in Guapa. I thought of that melody as the guitar accompaniment in between verses in a bolero song. That melody kept swinging in my head. I was thinking of different ideas for the verses until one day the final melody and lyrics came to me as I rode the subway.”
