Sergio George's Salsa Giants Receive Grammy Award Nomination For Best Tropical Latin Album

Bookmark and Share

Super producer Sergio George and his collective of living legends, the Salsa Giants, continued to earn accolades as this past Friday, the group was nominated for a 2014 Grammy Award for Best Tropical Latin Album. The nomination follows George's trio of wins at the 2013 Latin Grammy Awards for Producer of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Salsa Album for the Salsa Giants. The group also closed out the show with an incredible performance.

"The Salsa Giants project has been incredibly important to me and it has been amazing to see it succeed to this extent," said Sergio George. "To be nominated for a Grammy Award and earn the respect and admiration of our peers is a great feeling, particularly in a category with such talented artists."

Last summer, over 12,000 music fans gathered at the "Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival" to witness a once in a lifetime concert experience as a select group of renowned salsa musicians came together for a historical one night event. On June 25th, that experience was immortalized forever as "Salsa Giants" CD/DVD was released under the production of musical director and producer Sergio George through Top Stop Music. Following months of dominating the Billboard Tropical Music Chart, the album was certified Platinum in Mexico and certified Gold in Colombia, Venezuela, the United States and Peru.

The Salsa Giants concert begins with a brief piano introduction from George before a series of Salsa legends representing numerous cultures took the stage. Performances included Marc Anthony, Oscar D'León, Cheo Feliciano, Luis Enrique, Andy Montanez, Willy Chirino, Jose Alberto "El Canario", Tito Nieves, Nora from the "Orquesta de la Luz" and Charlie Zaa. Hits included "Fabricando Fantasías", "De Mí Enamórate", "Discúlpeme Senora", "Lo Que Está Pa' Ti", "Rebelión", "Yo No Se Manana", "Un Verano En Nueva York", "Llorarás" and "Tu Amor Me Hace Bien". The album also features an original song featuring all of the Salsa Giants entitled "Para Celebrar." Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/susanblondinc/para-celebrar/s-h1E45. A documentary on the show will be released on January 28, 2014. Executive produced by Gregory Elías, Sergio George and Pablo Croce, the "Salsa Giants" documentary, narrated by John Leguizamo, debuted this past spring at the Curacao International Film Festival Rotterdam and will continue to play at festivals throughout the year. A preview of the exciting new film can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-1oPioF2to.
