Sara Correia’s music album “Do Coração” is among the Latin Grammy nominees for “Best Portuguese Speaking Roots Music Album”.
Today, the Latin Recording Academy® announced the nominees for the 22nd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards®, the preeminent international honor and the only peer-selected award celebrating excellence in Latin music.
The Latin GRAMMYs® are voted on by The Latin Academy’s international membership body of music creators who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, producers, mixers, and engineers.
The winners will be known on November 18, in Las Vegas, USA.
This year’s Song Of The Year category comprises a diverse group of songwriters that reflect the diversity of Latin music and its worldwide power, which transcends language and country of origin. Latin music has gained global popularity.
Not only is the Latin community one of the largest and fastest-growing demographic groups in the U.S., but its music is more popular than ever.
In addition, this year’s Best New Artist category, which includes Giulia Be, María Becerra, Bizarrap, Boza, Zoe Gotusso, Humbe, Rita Indiana, Lasso, Paloma Mami, Marco Mares and Juliana Velásquez, features an incredible slate of nominees.
The Latin Recording Academy takes pride in the diversity within this category, as it has been an ongoing commitment of the organization to ensure that all creators see a future for their music in the industry.
The 22nd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards nominees were selected from more than 20,000 entries across 53 categories and reflect an expansive range of artists who released recordings during the eligibility period (June 1, 2020, through May 31, 2021).
All songs that are considered for nominations must contain a minimum percentage of lyric content in Spanish or Portuguese that ranges from 51% to 75%, depending on the category.
The only exceptions are for Best New Artist, where artists and groups are not eligible if they have established their public identity in a language other than Spanish or Portuguese, and Best Classical Contemporary Composition, where the work must have been composed by an Ibero-American.
