Colombia’s Bomba Estero and Monsieur Perine are among the nominees for this year’s Latin Grammy awards, the organizers of the awards announced Sunday.
Bogota-based electropop act Bomba Estereo was nominated for Record of the Year for their single “Fiesta,” released by Sony Music Latin earlier this year.
The band is competing with other major Latin acts like Ricky Martin, Miguel Bose and Julieta Venegas.
