List: 2018 Latin Grammys Winners, Presenters

Ten Years After the Failed Purge All Eyes on Argentina … AGAIN….

Last month, Argentine President Mauricio Macri led the global celebration of its Diwali festival, which was held in Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires. And this week, there was a carnival atmosphere for its traditional Caracol Music Awards.

The Caracol was broadcast live across Argentina on 12 TV channels, 300 radio stations and the web. During the ceremony, the singer Pablo Solon became the first female artist to win the song of the year title in the Caracol Music Awards’ 40-year history.
