The Orchard 2017 Latin Grammy Nominees

Latin Grammy AwardsThe Orchard’s vast Latin catalog of impressive labels and artists has pulled in a whopping 48 nominations for the 2017 Latin Grammy Awards. With hits from top recording artists including J Alvarez and Luan Santana to first time nominees, this year’s list is packed with the best from every corner of the Latin spectrum. The Orchard sends their biggest congratulations and best wishes to all nominees!

S-Music artist Sig Ragga is nominated for both Best Alternative Album and Best Alternative Song for La Promesa De Thamar and “Antonia,” respectively. The album is a beautiful mix ballads and dreamy deep sounds that along with the album artwork, are incredibly captivating with a just hint of eerie. Without a doubt, there was a phenomenal amount of artistry that went into La Promesa De Thamar, earning Sig two nominations.

Another double nominee is Silva up for Best MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira) Album and Best Portuguese Language Song with Silva Canta Marisa and track “Noturna (Nada de Novo na Noite)” via Som Livre. The young artist defines the future of music, composing, producing and performing his own versions from Marisa Monte’s repertoire. Along with Marisa Monte herself, Silva co-wrote the previously unpublished and now Grammy nominated track, “Noturna (nada de novo na noite).”

Tune in November 16th at 8PM on Univision to watch the biggest night in Latin music. Take a look below at our list of nominees and see the full list here.
