Afternoon Break: A Little Music From A Veteran Latin Grammy Winner

Last night, the Latin Grammy awards were handed out in Las Vegas. You can check out a recap over at NPR's Alt.Latino blog, but as an afternoon break, I wanted to point you to a studenpous artist whose stature isn't what it should be in the English-speaking world.

Juan Luis Guerra is a veteran of the music industry. He was the guy who brought the bachata style of music from the Dominican Republic into the mainstream. Lately, he's been making pop-infused tropical music. This is a cut off A Son De Guerra, which won the Grammy for best album last night. Note that it features Juanes, a super star on his own.
