    Caetano Veloso Wins Latin Grammy Award for Best Brazilian Song

    Congratulations to Caetano Veloso, who has won the 2014 Latin Grammy Award for Best Brazilian Song for "A Bossa Nova É Foda." The song is on his new release in Brazil, Multishow Ao Vivo Caetano Veloso Abraçaço, and appeared earlier on his latest studio album, Abraçaço, released this year in North America on Nonesuch Records.

    This is Veloso's 11th Latin Grammy Award, following last year's win for Best Singer-Songwriter Album for the South American release of Abraçaço. Additionally, Veloso was named the Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year in 2012.

    As part of his Abraçaço world tour, Caetano Veloso and his Banda Cê performed at the Nonesuch Records 50th anniversary celebrations earlier this year at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Barbican Centre in London, which the Times called "a perfect evening," the Guardian "exquisite." The Arts Desk wrote: "Caetano Veloso gets more extraordinary."

    The 15th annual Latin Grammy Awards ceremony was held on Thursday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and televised live on Univision, following President Obama's White House address on immigration. For more on the awards and the complete list of nominees and winners, visit latingrammy.com.
