Historical highlights

Latin Culture and Education

The Latin Recording Academy draws its membership from music professionals from Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking communities worldwide. Through its efforts, the Latin Academy works to strengthen these communities through networking opportunities and educational outreach. The Latin Grammy Awards were the first prime-time English-, Spanish-, and Portuguese-language telecast on U.S. television[1].

The Latin Recording Academy produces educational outreach programs in Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, and Miami. The Latin Academy also produces the e-Latin GRAMMY Carreras Y Música events. These events provide educational outreach to more than 10,000 high school age participants from at least 11 countries.[1] The Latin Academy's programs provide interested students the opportunity, using interactive satellite technology, the opportunity to discuss with musicians and members of the music industry what it is like to work in the business and what it takes to be successful in the field.
