Mieses Burgos says in one of his poems that spring songs are the smell of the wet ground, the singing barefoot voices, and treetops sounds. Sort of bohemian, very similar to a contemporary juggler, Pavel Nuñez brings back those sounds to life through his guitar chords. His dedication, connection with the public, and romantic melodies have made him one of the most famous Dominican musicians.
