Cuba's Septeto Santiaguero won Latin Grammy Award
The album Tributo a Los Compadres. No quiero llanto by the Septeto Santiaguero and Dominican singer José Alberto "El Canario", won last Thursday the 2015 Latin Grammy Award in Best Traditional Tropical Album.
The award was given by the Latin Recording Academy in a ceremony held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena of Las Vegas, United States.
The CD is a tribute to one of the most important duets in the history of Cuban popular music: Los Compadres.
The leader of this traditional music group dedicated the award to his native city in the year of its 500th anniversary and to the great maestros who agreed to participate in the disk.
Cuban traditional music has won, and now that the Buena Vista Social Club is no longer in the international arena, replacement is guaranteed, he concluded.
