Latin Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album

Latin Grammy Award

The Latin Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album is an honor presented annually by the Latin Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences at the Latin Grammy Awards, a ceremony that recognizes excellence and promotes a wider awareness of cultural diversity and contributions of Latin recording artists in the United States and internationally. According to the category description guide for the 2012 Latin Grammy Awards, the award is for vocal or instrumental alternative albums containing at least 51 percent of newly recorded material. It is awarded to solo artists, duos or groups. Mexican artists have received this award more than any other nationality though it has also been presented to artists originating from Colombia, the United States, and Venezuela. The award was first earned by the Mexican group Café Tacuba for the album Cuatro Caminos at the 5th Latin Grammy Awards ceremony held in 2004. Mexican performer Julieta Venegas is the only artist to have won this category more than once. The Argentine band Babasónicos, with four nominations, hold the record for most nominations without a win.
Date Established : 2004
