9th Annual Latin Grammy Award Winners (2008)

Brazilian, Jazz, Christian, Childrens, Production, Recording

By

A few years ago there was talk about under- representation of Regional Mexican music, but nobody talks about Brazilian music. Yes, it’s not in Spanish, but if it’s part of the contest, it would be nice to see and hear some Brazilian music on the show, Brazilian musicians attending the ceremony. The same can be said for Christian music.

The awards in Brazilian music went to different artists in each category with Vanessa De Mata taking home ‘Best Brazilian Contemporary Album’ and Seu Jorge’s America Brasil O Disco winning ‘Best MPB Album.’

The only multiple-award winner was Christian singer Soraya Moraes.

Here are the nominees and winners (in bold) for:
Brazilian, Jazz, Christian, Childrens, Classical

Links:
Record, Album, Song, Pop, Rock, Urban, Alternative, Video winners
