Uruguayan Band NTVG Hopes for Latin Grammy, Knows Winning Will Be Hard

MONTEVIDEO – Members of the Uruguayan band No Te Va a Gustar (NTVG) told EFE they’re eager to attend the Latin Grammy Awards but know how hard it will be next Nov. 15 for the group to walk away with the Best Rock Album Award.

“It’s not the first time (we’ve been nominated), there have been several times, around five, but we always lost,” Emiliano Brancciari said from the group’s Montevideo studio, where its recording of a new disc to be launched next year was underway.

For the Argentine composer, the difficulty of winning a Latin Grammy for “Suenan las Alarmas” (2017) is not only due to some great rivals – Spain’s Enrique Bunbury, the Argentine Richard Coleman, the Argentine group El Mato a un Policia Motorizado, and the Venezuelans Los Pixel – but also the fact that Uruguayan music isn’t a category very well known to the jury.

“An infinitely larger proportion of Mexicans and Colombians vote for the winners because it goes in proportion to the number of musicians who are on the jury. So it’s very hard (for Uruguayans),” the musician said, adding that in general the jurors vote for artists they already know.

With regard to the group’s upcoming 18-song album, the Buenos Aires native who has lived in Montevideo for 40 years noted that it will be a compilation of NTVG’s last 25 years and will include the band’s most popular numbers, unreleased material and featured guest artists.

To give a more intimate and personal touch to its 11th work, the group founded in 1994 will record material live on Dec. 20 before an audience.

“We’ll play sitting with our guests,” Brancciari said, adding that once the work is released – in March 2019 – they will go on tour, but unlike their more recent tours, the concerts for this disc will be “more intimate,” since they will be performed in theaters and other enclosed venues.
