The Echoes 2020 – Latin Alternative Album of The Year – La Gran Civilización by Nancy Sanchez

La Gran Civilización ranges across languages, genres, nations, and collaborators in a collection of 11 standout songs Sanchez wrote and produced over the past year with artists she admires and loves.  Each is a work of genius in its own right and together they form an unforgettable musical adventure through the modern archeology of Mexico’s grand civilizations from the Olmecs to today’s Chicanx’s.

The collaborations on this album are also brilliant:  the hip hop artist Olmeca, Latinx star Madame Recamier, the Latin Grammy-winning mariachi Flor de Toloache, the Grammy winning producer Robert Carranza –this album is a bounty of talent.
