So there are two Latin music award events coming up this spring: the Premio Lo Nuestro Awards (February 21 on Univision) and the Billboard Latin Music Awards (April 10 on Telemundo). It will be interesting to see who will win this year, but of course there are so many great artists every year that go unrecognized. Who are your favorites? They can be nominated or not, but share your picks for 2007.

Here are some Latin music genres to choose from:
Salsa
Reggaeton
Merengue
Bachata
Tropical
Flamenco
Argentine Tango
Afro-Cuban
Samba/Bossa Nova
Latin Pop/Rock
Ranchera/Tejano/Norteno
Other

I'm looking forward to finding some new favorites!

For salsa I like Pedro Conga (very danceable) and N'Klabe (very exciting). I also like Juan Luis Guerra for merengue and other tropical songs.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a review of "Watina," a beautiful album from Andy Palacio and the Garifuna Collective. The music has a very uplifting African feel, but it comes from the Garifuna people of Central America. Check it out under the "Reviews" section. The article provides a link where you can listen to songs from the CD with lyrics translated into English. NPR's World Music site has it listed as #1 on their Top 10 List. Check it out and let me know what you think!
