    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.

    "Though the exact day is not known, it was fifteen years ago that Lake Street Dive became a band," says Rachael Price. "McDuck wrote our name on the chalkboard of a practice room and it was done. We didn’t know each other that well. We had zero idea of what kind of music we would play. We certainly didn’t know that fateful day marked the beginning of the longest platonic double date of my life. We have been through so much together ... Happy Fifteenth Bandiversary, y'all!"
