Cuban Artists: Latin Grammy Nominees

Cuban artists Silvio Rodríguez and Leo Brouwer, and the groups Septeto Habanero and Sierra Maestra, were nominated to the 2010 Latin Grammies, and the winners will be announced on November 11.

Silvio Rodriguez will compete for the Award of Best Songwriter, against others such as Panamanian Ruben Blades, Uruguayan Jorge Drexler, Dominican Pavel Nuñez, Brazilian Maria Gadu and Colombian Santiago Cruz.

This is the second time Silvio Rodriguez is nominated to the Latin Grammies. In 2007, he was nominated, with a song called "Erase", to compete in the same award.

Leo Brouwer is considered among the world’s five best guitarists, and is now a competitor for the Award for Classic Music, with a CD called "Integral Cuartetos de Cuerda", with the participation of a Cuban quartet.

Septeto Habanero and Sierra Maestra are two of the oldest groups in Cuba. For Septeto Habanero, specifically, this would be its first Grammy Award if it becomes a winner finally, after 90 years of uninterrupted work.

Young Cuban composer Decemer Bueno also appears among the nominees, looking for the triumph at the competition for Best Song of the Year, with a song called "Cuando Me Enamoro" that has been performed by Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias and Dominican songwriter and singer Juan Luis Guerra.
