GRAMMY Rewind: Relive Juan Luis Guerra's Latin GRAMMY Win For Best Tropical Song For "Las Avispas" In 2005
Dominican musician and Latin music icon Juan Luis Guerra has won multiple Latin GRAMMYs in each of the last three decades, including his four recent wins at the 2021 Latin GRAMMYs. As if three decades of golden gramophones weren't enough, Guerra's streak further stretches across four consecutive decades when counting his multiple GRAMMYs, starting with his first-ever GRAMMY win, for Best Tropical Latin Album for Bachata Rosa, at the 34th GRAMMY Awards in 1992.
The latest episode of GRAMMY Rewind travels back in time to Guerra's early days to revisit his Latin GRAMMY win for Best Tropical Song for "Las Avispas" at the 6th Latin GRAMMY Awards in 2005. Watch below.
"Las Avispas" was featured on Guerra's 2004 album, Para Ti. The project, which earned the singer/composer a Latin GRAMMY Award for Best Christian Album (Spanish Language) that same night, served as the predecessor to Guerra's 2007 album, La Llave de Mi Corazón, which won six Latin GRAMMYs, including Album Of The Year, at the 8th Latin GRAMMY Awards in 2007 as well as the GRAMMY for Best Tropical Latin Album at the 50th GRAMMY Awards in 2008.
Fast-forward to today, and Guerra is still at the center of the Biggest Night in Latin Music. The 25-time Latin GRAMMY winner added four more Latin GRAMMYs to his name at the 22nd Latin GRAMMYs, taking home awards for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, Best Tropical Song, Best Arrangement, and Best Long Form Music Video.
