The 2012 Remezcla Awards

Read more

Here at Remezcla we think it’s important to honor those who have made truly outstanding contributions to the culture. That is why we have created the Remezcla Awards – a prize to highlight Latino Excellence. Latinobility, if you will. These awards represent the result of a complex nomination and voting process, with external vetting from tastemakers in the Latin Alternative scene. JK, it’s just some we liked and we think you’ll like it too. Check back for updates, we’ll be handing out new awards through the end of the year!
