Banda de Turistas, Ceci Bastida, Hello Seahorse! Among The 11th Annual Latin Grammy Nominees

Congratulations to Banda de Turistas (2 noms!), Ely Guerra, Hello Seahorse!, Choc Quib Town, Ceci Bastida, Julieta Venegas, La Mala Rodriguez, Gustavo Cerati and others for their nominations at this year's Latin Grammys. These nominees probably come from the same people that nominated Juan Son, Natalia Lafourcade, Choc Quib Town and Hello Seahorse! last year.

This will be the 11th edition of the always controversial gala, to be celebrated in Las Vegas in November. Juan Luis Guerra, Jorge Drexler, Alejandro Sanz, and Camila's Mario Domm lead the nominations with 4 nods each. This is by far, the most boring list of nominees in Latin Grammy history, but congrats on the few for their recognition!

The Latin Grammys are always fun to talk about, and not just for their campy value, LARAS is one juicy union to debate over democracy and revalue the weight of entertainment across its platforms. Despite mostly horrible winners, there are always a handfulof dependable voters that make the Latin Grammys far less embarrassing. Yet again, most of the artists we love don’t even subscribe their albums for award consideration, something important toconsider before calling up the snubs.
