Peru's Cosa Nuestra up for Best Fusion Tropical Album at 17th Latin GRAMMYs

At this year’s 17th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, Peruvian group Cosa Nuestra is nominated for Best Tropical Fusion album for its “Pregoneros de la Calle,” and the most popular alternative band in Peru Bareto’s album “Impredecible” is nominated for Best Recording Package.

Fusing Peruvian creole, afro-Peruvian music, salsa, merengue and more, “Pregoneros de la Calle” is one of Cosa Nuestra’s greatest accomplishments. In addition to the amazing honor of being nominated for a Latin GRAMMY Award, the group also performed at the 56th Annual International Festival of Vina del Mar.

Released in November 2015, “Impredecible” has given Bareto a broader international reach. With the enduring influence of Peruvian Psychedlic Cumbia, the group ventured out to include everything from instrumental cumbia and electronic elements to deep dub atmosphere.
