2000-2010 Flamenco Latin Grammy

Tomatito once again triumphs at the Latin Grammy Awards. The Almería-born guitarist has won his second Grammy for Best Flamenco Album. The one from this eleventh edition of the latin music awards distinguishes ‘Sonanta Suite’, an album on which his guitar converses with the National Orchestra of Spain, conducted by Josep Pons. The repertoire includes the guitarist’s own scores, such as the taranta, tangos and alegrías, plus versions of songs like ‘Adiós Nonino’ by Astor Piazzolla and ‘Two much’ by Michel Camilo, among others. The prize is repeated five years after winning the first one for the album ‘Aguadulce’. Other candidates for this year’s award were José Mercé for ‘Ruido’, Niño Josele for ‘Española’, Enrique Morente for ‘Morente Flamenco’ and Juan Carmona for ‘El sentido del aire’. This makes five Grammies which have been won by flamenco guitar in the decade-long history of these awards and which have gone to musicians of this specialty like Paco de Lucía, Vicente Amigo and Juan Habichuela.
