An hour and a half into the 16th annual Latin Grammy Awards, the ceremony was moving at a good clip. There were power ballads. There was smoke. There was cumbia and reggaeton. And there was Ricky Martin shaking his hips on “La Mordidita.”
Then Mexican rockers Maná took the stage with norteño legends Los Tigres del Norte. They sang the rousing immigrant anthem “Somos Más Americanos” (We Are More American), first recorded by Los Tigres in 2001, and covered by Maná on its recent album, “Cama Incendiada” (Burning Bed), which won the night’s Latin Grammy for pop/rock album.
