Four diverse projects will receive up to $5,000 in research and preservation funding.
A foundation that seeks to preserve the legacy of Colombian vallenato icon Rafael Escalona and a research project on the traditions of voice and drums in Argentina are among the four projects awarded grants this year by the Latin Grammy Foundation.
The Foundation’s “Research and Preservation Grant” program awarded a total of four grants: two for research projects, and two for preservation projects. Each grant is for a maximum of $5,000.
Winners were chosen from a wide pool of applicants that Latin Grammy Cultural Foundation senior vice president Manolo Díaz described as “the most diverse applicant pool in the history of our program.”
