As part of this year’s holiday celebrations at the Altos de Chavón Main Plaza, Dominican Merengue artist Rubby Pérez “La Voz Más alta del Merengue” (“The Highest Voice of Merengue”) filled the plaza with the rhythm of merengue!

No stranger to a cheering crowd, Rubby Pérez took to the stage a little before 10 pm on Wednesday, December 28th and within seconds had fans dancing to merengue and singing along to his top hits.

The Dominican star oozed enthusiasm and rhythm while singing “Cuando estés con el”, “Volvere” and “Perro ajeno”. Altos de Chavón had set up an open dance floor and tables at the Plaza. Attendees danced song after song, never tiring, and even made requests the artist was all too happy to fulfill. It was awesome, and Rubby Pérez stayed late into the night. He brought with him quite the musical entourage with a full band, and his daughter singing backup, all of which enhanced the plazas’ atmosphere for the occasion.

Known for starting his career after he joined the Wilfrido Vargas orchestra during the early 1980s (1982-1987), where he had the honor of singing hits such as “El Africano”, “Volveré”, “Las Avispas”, “Cuando estés con el”, “Cobarde, Cobarde”, among others.

His foray as a soloist in 1987 brought hits like “Buscando tus Besos” in collaboration with Álex Bueno, “Dame veneno”, “Enamorado de ella”, “Hazme olvidarla”, “Sobreviviré”, “Tú vas a volar”, “Hipocresía”, “El perro ajeno”, “Así no te amarán jamás”, “Tonto corazón” among others.

We enjoyed so much seeing him in person, and are reliving the best of the night with “La Voz Más alta del Merengue” in this video provided by Casa de Campo filmed by FEEDAD:
