Australia is a long way from Mexico and with an almost non-existent Latin population it is hard to find great new music and even harder to get a decent taco. (I love Mexican food.)
The Latin Grammys proved exceptional as I was exposed to several new artist with whom I fell immediately in love. Wisin & Yandel were off the charts as well as this group, Camila, who took several Latin Grammys. Besame one of the most highly regarded Latin mariachi boleros, which I can in fact acclaim is terribly romantic serenaded on a beach on Playa La Ropa. I have loved it for years.
The boys of Camila deliver Besame with soulful vocals, a touch of pop falsetto, and a refreshing spin on the classic lyrics. If you are a music lover (regardless of language), you can't help but feel the romance and passion this song delivers. Ultimately and universally, the song says "Kiss Me".
The Latin Grammys was a night of music, theatrics, and a celebration of a culture that I am very proud of. Enjoy the show!
