Looking Ahead to the Nominations

The most exciting part of the Latin Grammys is discovering new artists and rooting for our favorites to walk away with the prize. Sounds and Colours are always on the cutting edge of Latin Music. They look at the latest news from the names we love like Bomba Estereo. They are also great at picking up new sounds emerging from the music scene in different countries.

Here are some of the highlights from this year’s nominations:

Colombia and the Alternative Music Categories

The categories for Best Alternative Music Song and Best Alternative Music Album have a good amount of representation from Colombia. We are very excited about these two musical acts: Aterciopelados and Andrea Echeverri.

The Aterciopelados have been making music since 1990, when they were known as Delia y los Aminoácidos. This year, they are nominated for their fourth Latin Grammy for their album Tropiplop. Previously, they won the prize for Best Rock Album from a Group or Duo for their album Gozo Poderoso, among others.

Andrea Echeverri is nominated for Best Alternative Music Song for her Antidiva. She has already earned an MTV Award for her solo work.

Gepe and Vicentico

Gepe and Vicentico are two names out of Chile who have been attracting millions of fans for years. Gepe has always been more in the alternative world, and they are now both nominated for a song they have made together: Confia.

They will also be competing against Andrea Echeverri in the category of Best Alternative Music Song. We are always excited to see new music from these two. Gepe has released some exciting songs with other Latin American music stars.

One of the most exciting was the song Timidez that he released alongside best-selling Natalia Lafourcade. Another headline-grabbing duo was the song Hambre that he released with Wendy Sulcra. Fans may remember her from her hit En Tus Tierras Bailaré.
