Tangana with “El madrileño”, as well as Bomba Estéreo with “Deja ”, Electric Diamond with “Look what you made me do (deluxe edition)” and Zoé with “Sounds of karmatic resonance”.

(Super Deluxe)”, Aida Cuevas for “Anthology of ranchera music, Vol. 2” and Natalia Lafourcade for “A song for Mexico, Vol. II”.
In its 64th edition, the Grammys will be presented for the first time in Las Vegas after having moved from Los Angeles due to the increase in cases of COVID-19 and the omicron variant in January. The show will be broadcast live from 8 pm in New York on the CBS network and the Paramount+ streaming service, but most of the awards, including those in the Latin music categories, are presented beforehand in a non-televised gala known as the “Premiere” that can be followed online.
Other Latin contenders this year are Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba in the category of best instrumental jazz album, along with Ron Carter and Jack DeJohnette for “Skyline.” And Carlos Rafael Rivera, American composer of Cuban and Guatemalan origin, in the award for best soundtrack for an audiovisual medium for his score for the Netflix series “The Queen’s Gambit”.
