Trio Bembe wins Western Canadian Music Award for World Recording of the Year

Trio Bembe takes home the World Music Award

We were suprised last night when the WCMA host called the World Music category first out of all the awards. Scott had two glasses of wine in his hands, and we had to run down to the stage! We were given the Western Canadian Music Award for World Recording of the Year! We’re very excited, honored, and thankful to our families, friends, and fans (the three seem to mix all together!).

Trio Bembe WCMA Celebration Party

We’ll be celebrating our award at the Cyrk House on Friday, Nov 4. We’ll bring the award (and maybe collect fingerprints like Al Simmons did with his Juno), share some stories about our time in the Yukon, and dance the night away to great Latin music! Plus, we hear there’s killer salsa at the Cyrk.

Bragging about Manitobans

Manitobans swept the awards clean, with artist after artist from Manitoba garnering awards for music and industry. We’re so proud of our Manitoban friends:

Don Amero – Aboriginal Recording of The Year

The Wailin’ Jennys – Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year

Del Barber – Roots Solo Recording of the Year

Romi Mayes – Songwriter of the Year

Imaginary Cities – Pop Recording of the Year

Winnipeg, please join us to celebrate on November 4th. We’ll see you there!


Amber, Rodrigo, y Scott
