[video] 2005 Latin Grammys:
Cachao con Bebo Valdez

Note: In 2005 Univision picked up the telecast of the Latin Grammys event. Unlike CBS' previous broadcasts, was this time produced completely in Spanish at a more respectable 3-hour broadcast. The event event reached 9 Million viewers, or 2 Million more viewers than the previous broadcasts on CBS, making it the largest audience ever for the event.

With this consideration, makes it even more fantastic that this tribute to Israel Lopez Cachao with Bebo Valdez and other musical contemporaries were exposed to more audiences than ever.

Here is the line-up of this historical segment:
Andy Garcia presenta un homenaje para Israel López "Cachao" con Bebo Valdez (piano). Incluye: Generoso Jimenez (trombon), Johnny Pacheco (guiro), Arturo Sandoval (trompeta) Orestes Vilato (pailas), Lazaro Galargara (sonero), Danilo Lozano (flauta), John Santos (tumbadores), Ed Calle (saxophon), Joel Peña (tres), y los hermanos Nelson Garcia-Marquez (claves) y Richie R. Marquez (coro).
