Each year as we celebrate music, the Latin community comes together to celebrate and honor Latin musical artists at the Latin Grammys. The Latin Grammys began when the Grammys created the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences meant to showcase and discover unique, multinational industry professionals, musicians, producers, engineers, and other creatives within the field. These men and women represent those who have devoted their careers to improving the quality of life and cultural condition of Latin music both in and out of the US. Launched in 1997, it gave way to a vibrant and passionate community of Latin music and culture.
Each year as the Latin Grammys prepare for an unforgettable evening of explosive performances and honorees, nominees and special guests are invited into the coveted gifting suite. Artists are invited to the gifting suite to learn about new products, brands and more, and are gifted with swag consisting of each brand and product featured as a thank you. It’s a beautiful way to acknowledge talent and those who make this industry so important to continuing the cultural conversation.
