This genre of fiery music has left an indelible mark on artists worldwide.
The awards ceremony saw Colombian singing sensation Shakira and Argentine DJ Bizarrap claiming top honors, winning the Song of the Year and Best Pop Song categories. The Latin Grammys celebrated a night dominated by Latin American female performers, with Colombia’s Karol G clinching the Album of the Year award for “Manana Sera Bonito” (“Tomorrow will be beautiful”).
The event kicked off with a spectacular performance by last year’s Album of the Year winner, Spanish singer-songwriter Rosalia. Her flamenco-themed rendition of “Se nos rompio el amor” (“Our Love Has Broken”) captivated the audience, eliciting an ecstatic response.
Seville’s status as the birthplace of flamenco added a special significance to the occasion. Spanish singer Omar Montes expressed his pride in representing the city’s rich musical heritage, stating, “Seville is the birthplace of flamenco. Imagine representing what you have inside you, and that people like it and are enjoying it. I’m very proud.”
The Latin Grammy Awards in Seville showcased not only outstanding musical talent but also celebrated the cultural richness of the city and its profound influence on the world of music.
