this year, garnering 10 nominations for headlining awards like album and song of the year. The announcement ties a bow on what has proven to be a momentous year for the relatively new artist, from releasing a highly-praised sophomore album (Mis Manos) to several high-profile collaborations, including "999" with Selena Gomez.

Rising star Rauw Alejandro will vie for song and record of the year alongside industry legends like Marc Anthony and Julio Iglesias. "Tattoo (Remix)," Alejandro's single with Camilo, is up for best urban fusion/performance.

Colombian band Diamante Eléctrico, which recently performed a Tiny Desk (home) concert, received nominations for best record and song of the year, as well as for best pop/rock album and song.

Reggaeton, despite its artistic and commercial success worldwide, remains a poor showing in Latin Grammy nominations. Bad Bunny came away with four; El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo was the only reggaeton record to receive a nod for album of the year. J Balvin, Farruko, Karol G, Ozuna and "La Curiosidad'' by Jay Wheeler, DJ Nelson and Myke Towers are up for best reggaeton performance.

Arguably one of 2021's biggest stories in music, "Patria y Vida" has been nominated song of the year and best urban record of the year. For an in-depth explainer that dug into its many references, Alt.Latino called the collaborative track "a unifying cry for the largest uprising in recent Cuban history." Written and performed by Cubans in exile (Gente de Zona, Orishas' Yotuel Romero, Descemer Bueno) and those still on the island (Maykel Osboro and Eliécer "el Funky" Márquez), "Patria y Vida" has become the artistic cornerstone for a massive historical moment, paving the way for future Latin American protest through music.

The awards will air live on Univision on Nov. 18.

Be on KRCB 104.9...answer this month's "Talk to Me" question: With fire season upon us, are you having second thoughts about Sonoma County?
You can do a recording right from your computer or smartphone, but please use an external microphone (ear buds are good enough). Don't worry, you can try as many times you like until you get a "good take." We won’t hear any of the bad ones. After you finish, the page will give you a chance to listen and decide if you like it. Once you get a good one, you'll be asked for your name and email address. Then hit "Send.” (Click "reset" if you would rather try again.)

Listen to the Sonoma County Birdwatch!

fullerThroughout the week, we play short segments about what birds are out in Sonoma County and what they sound like, from Harry Fuller. Here's what we've aired so far. Harry spent his working career as a TV and Internet newsman in the Bay Area.  He’s been leading bird trips and writing about birds for thirty years.  He has written three natural history books: Freeway Birding, I-5 San Francisco to Seattle; San Francisco’s Natural History, Sand Dunes to Streetcars; Great Gray Owl in California, Oregon & Washington. He blogs regularly about birds:  And he frequently leads birding trips on the Pacific Coast. Check him out at

Our podcast "Living Downstream" has been named by the Global Center for Climate Justice as one of "Five Climate Justice Podcasts You Need to Follow." Wow:

Listen to some recent episodes! Generations in Houston's Fifth Ward Contend with Contamination, Cancer Clusters will break your heart, and perhaps solidify your resolve to make change. The Sea Next Door is told in true partnership with the community living near California's Salton Sea, an environmental powder keg, where the state has no idea how to avoid a coming health disaster.
