The Acoustic Sessions of the Latin Grammy 2022 will begin with a Mexican accent

Miami, Jul 12 (EFE) .- The Latin Grammy Acoustic Sessions will begin this year on July 22 with a digital concert of the Mexican regional genre in which El Fantasma will participate accompanied by Los dos carnales and Lupita Infante, reported this Tuesday the Latin Recording Academy.

“We are very excited to kick off this series with the high energy of this group of young and talented exponents of the Mexican regional genre,” said Manuel Abud, executive director of the Latin Recording Academy.

The complete acoustic performance will be available on the Facebook page of the Latin Recording Academy on July 22, 2022 at 9:00 am local time (13:00 GMT) and after 48 hours and for 90 days it will be available on the pages of Artists Facebook.

The new edition of Acoustic Sessions, a series of live events for small audiences that began six years ago, will feature two digital concerts recorded in Mexico City and Sao Paulo, presented in collaboration with the Meta platform.

Until now, the artists participating in the concert have not been reported from Brazil.


The concert of the Mexican regional genre was recorded at the Roberto Cantoral Cultural Center in Mexico City and includes interpretations of songs chosen by the artists involved, as well as unpublished collaborations, duets and narrations.

Abud highlighted in a statement that the Academy seeks with the Latin Grammy Acoustic Sessions “to open inclusive spaces where music creators can express their talent, inspiring cultural appreciation, promotion and preservation of their respective musical genres.”

El Fantasma, whose real name is Alexander García and who successfully debuted with “Mi 45” in 2016, is a regional Mexican music singer who is part of the new wave of “meximillennials” and who in 2018 achieved his first nomination for the Latin Grammy, in the category Best Band Music Album.

“It is an honor for me to have the opportunity to participate in the first acoustic session focused on the regional Mexican genre and present my culture and the musical traditions of my country to a global audience,” said El Fantasma.

Los dos carnales is made up of brothers Imanol and Poncho Quezada, who quickly rose to fame in 2018 with their first album, “Te Lo Died.”

They have collaborated with El Fantasma on several songs, including the 2020 hit “Cabrón y vago,” and a year later they won the Latin Grammy for Best Norteño Music Album.

Mexican-American singer-songwriter Lupita Infante, granddaughter of the legendary Pedro Infante, is an expert in the traditions of mariachi, ranchera and norteño music, and has been nominated for a Latin Grammy and a Grammy.

Adrian Harley, Director of Label Partnerships for Meta in Latin America, stressed that “music videos are an exciting part of people’s social experience on Meta’s platforms.”

“The Latin Recording Academy has partnered with us for a long time, supporting artists to express themselves, share their music and connect with fans around the world,” he added.

The Latin Grammy Acoustic Sessions, in addition to presenting established musical stars, contribute to the development of emerging talent, with a focus on diversity and equity within each genre.
