Congrats to Manu Chao and Julieta Venegas. The two are known staples of the Latin Alternative music genre and both left the 2008 Latin Billboard Awards with un premio.
Manu Chao won for Latin Rock/Alternative Album Of The Year for "La Radiolina" (Because/Nacional) - This amazing album features the award-winning song, "Me Llaman Calle"
Julieta Venegas stole our hearts (well...my heart) with her break-out hit, "Me Voy" but snatched this award for her addictive, pop-infused hit, "Eres Para Mi" (Sony BMG Norte)
Felicitaciones you two!
Check out the BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards TONIGHT because Manu is up for another award. We have our fingers crossed!
