After a glamorous and shimmering awards ceremony at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay, the 2012 Latin Grammy Awards have been distributed! Accomplished and talented artists representing a wide range of (pan)Latin American musical forms came together for a night of performances, award speeches, and excellently tailored suits. Now, we at Afropop would like to offer congratulations to some of our favorite winners, this year’s most unique and engaging Latino musical offerings!
3Ball MTY, Best New Artist, is quickly rising to superstardom via their vision of tribal guarachero!
Carla Morrison, you are breakin’ our hearts with that Best Alternative Album of the Year!
Balia la salsa con Luis Enrique! Best Salsa Album: “Soy y Sere”
But honestly we are surprised and disappointed that Chip Torres was not in the running for Best New Artist. We will see you, Senor Torres, in our pixelated dreams!
