Lafourcade wins 4 Latin Grammys, Guerra takes 3.

Natalia Lafourcade was the big winner Thursday at the Latin Grammy Awards, making good on four of her five nominations for her album Hasta la Raiz. But the Mexican singer-songwriter lost out on the top prize, album of the year, which went to Dominican bachata artist Juan Luis Guerra for Todo Tiene su Hora. “My friend, how amazing that we made this disc together,” Lafourcade said to her friend and collaborator Leonel Garcia, with whom she shared three nominations as co-writers of the album’s title track. The feel-good, EDM track — Smith’s first release in a decade — was given a suitably energetic and colorful performance, in which he donned an all-white ensemble and rapped about trying to “find his Sofia Vergara” in a mix of Spanish and English.

Colourful performance mash-ups underscored the mix: Jamaican artist Omi shared the stage with reggaeton singer Nicky Jam, and Will Smith returned to his rap roots, performing Fiesta with Colombian trop-rockers Bomba Estereo. Another Latin Grammy favorite, Banda El Recodo de Don Cruz Lizárraga — who play traditional Mexican banda music with elaborate arrangements — won best banda album while their song “Todo tuyo” won best regional song.

And singer/songwriter Leonel Garcia, nominated for six Latin Grammys, won two as a co-writer for LaFourcade’s “Hasta la Raíz.” Two Latin music icons — Mexican rockers Maná (fresh from winning best pop/rock album for Cama Incendiada) and norteño kings Los Tigres del Norte — in a way photo-bombed the show when, after their joint performance, they unfurled a banner that read: “United Latinos, Don’t Vote For Racists.” “You have the opportunity to vote for someone who supports immigration reform,” said lead singer Fher Olvera, who has long been vocal about the topic. “There are over 50 million Latins in the U.S. Use your strength, Latinos!” Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump drew ire from Hispanics and others when he said Mexican immigrants are rapists who bring drugs into the United States. There are many ways to craft fair immigration reform.” Politics, however, mostly took a backseat to Latin pride, which was in constant evidence during a show rife with local cultural references and sometimes unexpected collaborations.

In what was most definitely a surprise win, young, quirky Colombian trio Monsieur Periné, whose music is at times reminiscent of Postmodern Jukebox, won best new artist, despite the fact that their music is very little known here. J Balvin won best urban song for “Ay vamos” and Nicky Jam, an adopted Colombian of sorts, won best urban performance with Enrique Iglesias for “El perdón.” Most of the 48 awards of the evening were doled out at the pre-telecast, billed this year as the “Premiere Awards,” which took place at the KA Theater in the MGM Grand.

Beside Guerra and LaFourcade, who collected early awards, Mexican star Pedro Fernandez won best ranchero album for Acaríciame el corazón, and exhorted the small audience to show their appreciation. “I want to hear that applause. It’s not easy to make an album!” he shouted good-naturedly, although much applause was spontaneously given to Colombian trio ChocQuibTown, who won best tropical fusion album for El Mismo. “We come from a very small place,” said member Tostao, referring to their impoverished home state of Chocó. “We work very hard to make our dreams come true.” Other early winners included the videos for Calle 13’s “Ojos Color Sol” — which features Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal — and Juanes’ “Loco de Amor, La Historia,” which won best short form video and best long from video, respectively. Alex Cuba won for best singer/songwriter album for Healer and veteran Ruben Blades, who, with Roberto Delgado & Orchestra, won best salsa album for his independently produced and released Son de Panamá. Cuba was also present in the Best traditional tropical album, Tributo a los compadres, no quiero llanto, by Dominican sonero Jose Alberto “El Canario” with Septeto Santiaguero.
