Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Camila Luna solidifies 2017 with her second Latin Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album for the album Flora y Fauna.
In 2015, Camila Luna was nominated for Best Pop/Rock Album for her albumFlamboyán. Camila shares the 2017 Best Contemporary Pop Vocal Album category alongside Shakira, Alejandro Fernández, David Bisbal, and Sebastián Yatra.
“I’m completely surprised by this new Latin Grammy nomination. First and foremost, I want to thank the Latin Recording Academy from the bottom of my heart for believing in my project. It amazes me to that I’m nominated alongside artists who I’ve considered my idols for many years. I want to thank my family, boyfriend, friends, and my incredible producer José Luis ‘Cheo’ Parto (Los Amigos Invisibiles) for their unending support. I’ve taken a lot of risks with this album, from the lyrics to the sound and my inspiration drawing from Surrealist art. It’s an honor and a pleasure to see the reaction to all the songs on my album,” affirms Camila.
This album came as a pleasant surprise for the Latin music industry. The first two singles received an incredible reaction from fans and music critics alike. “Siento” garnered 3.2 million plays on Spotify and “Despierto,” the second single co-written by Simón Grossman, is getting close to half a million plays a couple of weeks after its release.
The album art was done by Brazilian designer Marcelo Monreal and award-winning Puerto Rican photographer Omar Cruz.
The record Flora y Fauna has been available on all the digital platforms since last March. The music videos for “Siento” and “Despierto” can also be found on Camila Luna’s official YouTube channel.
Camila will participate in a philanthropic event this week in Miami at the Open Stage Club alongside KerreKe and Alejandro Irizarry to raise funds for the victims of the tragedies that took place in Puerto Rico and Mexico. She will be playing at the Deja Vu Audio South in Miami on October 12 (7 PM ET).
