Our country surprises in the 23rd edition of the Latin Grammy, because It is the first time that four female artists have been nominated. The maximum number of female representatives in a contest for the Latin gramophone was 3, during the 2020 edition, where Eva Ayllón and Susana Baca also competed, along with Araceli Poma for Just Play Peru.

On the other hand, during the last five years, Peru has had an outstanding participation in the competition for the Latin Grammy. For example, in 2019 it achieved the historic figure of 11 nominations in different categories. Among them was Tony Succar (who competed with 4 nominations), as well as Eva Ayllón and Gian Marco with one nomination each.

On three occasions, our country managed to get three national representatives to take home the gramophone from the Latin Recording Academy. In 2011, the song “Latinoamérica” (in which Susana Baca participates) won two gramophones and Gian Marco accompanied it with the award for Best Singer-Songwriter Album. Tony Succar -with two gramophones- and Enrique ´Kike´ Purizaga -with one- triumphed for the 2019 edition; In addition to the additional recognition obtained by the teacher Eva Ayllón, who was awarded the Award for Musical Excellence, thanks to her outstanding career in the industry. Meanwhile, Susana Baca, Lorenzo Ferrero and Justin Moshkevich did the same, winning their respective categories at the awards ceremony held in 2020.

In the Latin Grammys of the year 2000 and 2021, no nominations were achieved for these important music awards, which, according to the organization itself, seeks to recognize “the diversity of Latin music and its great cultural influence worldwide”.
