Andy Montanez, Chucho Valdes, Wilfrido Vargas at the 19th annual Latin Grammy – Day 2




If you are VidaSalsera.com’s friend on Facebook, you already saw me whine because the Latin Grammy didn’t give us a press pass into the event. The consolation prize, however, is daily pictures of all the fun we’re missing out on. So, I figured I will go through them and share with you the pictures that are of interest to us on account of our Salsa music.

The following photos are from Tuesday (Nov. 13)’s events, particularly the Special Awards Presentation. The Latin Recording Academy® honored the Lifetime Achievement and Trustees recipients during a private ceremony held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas as part of the 19th Annual Latin GRAMMY® Week. The award recipients included Andy Montañez, Chucho Valdés, and Wilfrido Vargas.
