This year’s Grammy nominations in the Latin music categories are eclectic and magnificent. From Colombia’s Monsieur Periné‘s Gypsy Jazz to the powerhouse horns of classic banda by Mexico’s Banda el Recodo to sweet merengue-tinge pop by Juan Luis Guerra from the Dominican Republic to the tropical beats of  Panama’s Ruben Blade and the Nicaraguan chinamero metalero of Cuneta Son Machín to just about everything in between, there’s something for everyone to love in the 2016 Grammy Nominations. It’s a wonderful musical paseo, enjoy!   Screenshot 2016-02-02 19.05.59
