Take A Look Inside The Latin GRAMMYs Digital Exhibit At The GRAMMY Museum
Ahead of the 2020 Latin GRAMMYs on Thursday, Nov. 19, the GRAMMY Museum invites you to revisit their engaging bilingual exhibit celebrating the magic and history of the Latin GRAMMYs. Available for the first time virtually (for free!), "Latin GRAMMYs, 20 Years Of Excellence" invites viewers to take a closer look at the artists—along with their instruments, performances and killer outfits—and moments that make the yearly Latin GRAMMYs show the Biggest Night in Latin Music.
In the exhibit, you can explore the colorful artwork for each Latin GRAMMY Awards show, outfits worn by artists at the shows over the years—like the tuxedo, pictured above, Juan Gabriel wore during his 40-minute performance at the 2009 Latin GRAMMYs—and an amazing collection of instruments, including a custom guitar from Carlos Vives and an accordion from Los Tigres del Norte's frontman Jorge Hernández.
You will learn about the history of the show—like how the first five years it was broadcast in English instead of Spanish—and its lively performances. You can also explore the different musical styles, from salsa to cumbia to alt-rock en Español, and sounds created in the Latin GRAMMY-nominated and -winning music throughout the decades.
First unveiled at the GRAMMY Museum at L.A. Live in 2019 as part of the museum's renovated third floor, the exhibit celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Latin GRAMMY Awards that year.
Visit "Latin GRAMMYs, 20 Years Of Excellence" on the GRAMMY Museum's site, where you can also explore all virtual exhibits, including exhibits celebrating Count Basie, John Denver, Monterey International Pop Festival and many more.
The 2020 Latin GRAMMYs will air on Univision on Thursday, Nov. 19, at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. CT). The broadcast will also air on TNT (cable) at 7 p.m. (MEX)/8 p.m. (COL)/10 p.m. (ARG/CHI), and on Televisa on Channel 5.
