Latin Grammy winner Jarabe de Palo is nominated for 3 awards, includingÂ â€œAlbum of the Yearâ€ â€œBest Rock Songâ€ and â€œBest Pop/Rock Albumâ€ for his latest record â€˜Somos.â€™Â Fronted by prolific songwriter Pau DonÃ©s, Barcelona-based Jarabe de Palo originally broke onto the international scene with their timeless smash hit â€œLa Flaca.â€ Throughout their storied career, Jarabe de Palo has been nominated for 16 Latin Grammyâ€™s and sold more than five million albums worldwide, collaborating with a wide variety of major artists such as Celia Cruz, Compay Segundo, Pavarotti and Chrissy Hynde (The Pretenders).
Ana Tijoux is nominated for 3 Latin Grammyâ€™s, including â€œBest Urban Songâ€ for the title track from her new album â€˜Vengo,â€™ which debuted #1 on the iTunes Latin charts and has earned strong praise and multiple features at Newsweek, NPR, Billboard, Spin, Rolling Stone, NY Times and more. â€˜Vengoâ€™ is the follow-up to Ana Tijoux’s Grammy and Latin Grammy nominated album ‘La Bala,’ which was widely celebrated by critics as one of the best albums of the year. The buzz around Ana Tijoux has been steadily building since her Grammy nominated debut â€˜1977â€™ was featured in â€˜Breaking Bad,â€™ ABCâ€™s â€˜Dancing With the Stars‘ and EA Sportsâ€™ FIFAÂ video game.Â Ana Tijoux is also twice nominated for â€œRecord of the Yearâ€ and â€œSong of the Yearâ€ for â€œUniversos Paralelos,â€ her collaboration with Academy Award winner Jorge Drexler.
After winning â€œBest Rock Albumâ€ for â€˜SerÃ¡â€™ at last yearâ€™s Latin Grammyâ€™s, La Vida Boheme is once again nominated this year for â€œBest Music Videoâ€ for â€œFlamingo.â€Â NPR Music chose La Vida Bohemeâ€™s Latin Grammy-winning sophomore album â€˜SerÃ¡â€™ as one of their ’50 Favorite Albums of 2013,’ after iTunes celebrated the band as the â€˜Latino Breakthrough Artist of 2011.â€™ La Vida Boheme was nominated for a Grammy and two Latin Grammyâ€™s for their debut record â€˜Nuestra.â€™ Their music appears in the hit video games Grand Theft Auto V and FIFA.Â Esquire magazine writes, â€œWhen I saw La Vida BohemeÂ at SXSW, I flashed to seeing The Clash in 1979. It was the fierceness, the original sound, the hodgepodge of styles â€” it was the clash of cultures and sound.â€
