Early Latin Grammy Buzz for Cuban Music
For your consideration -- Para su consideración
November 15 2012 @ the Mandalay Events Center in Las Vegas
The first round of the 2012 Latin Grammys offers a variety of Cuban music for your consideration. These entries are posted for informational and consideration purposes only, as we believe it's important to highlight the steady inroads Cuban music is making into the industry amid plenty of market resistance. The one very key point to understand about the Grammys is that it is not driven by sales, only by the votes of its private, professional members. So no matter how many copies a record sold, if it gathers enough artistic accolades and merits, it is likely to be nominated. Here are the following first round entries to consider:
