Five nominees in the “Best Flamenco Album” category of the 2020 Latin Grammys

After a year when the trophy was not awarded due to lack of nominees, the “Best Flamenco Album” award is back in the 2020 Latin Grammys with the presence of five excellent CDs. The candidates are new releases by Ezequiel Benítez, Antonio Campos, Naike Ponce, Antonio Rey and Antonio Reyes.

We got good news in the summer of 2020: flamenco was back in the Latin Grammys, just one year after it was absent from this renowned award ceremony. An art form like flamenco, UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage, had been excluded from what is considered the Oscars of music. Yet, a campaign by Josemi Carmona, flamenco coordinator of the SGAE Foundation, succeeded in bringing back this category.

Thus, it was just a matter of knowing which albums would contest this trophy. The nominees are new releases by Ezequiel Benítez, Antonio Campos, Naike Ponce, Antonio Rey and Antonio Reyes. The award ceremony will take place on November 19, 2020 in Miami, USA. We at ExpoFlamenco are happy for these nominees and wish them the best of luck.
