See extract from Latin Grammys press release here:
Cuban singer/songwriter/guitarist Pablo Milanés is recognized as one of the founders of the Cuban nueva trova music style. In the early '50s, Milanés moved to Havana with his family to study at the prestigious Municipal Conservatory of Havana. Milanés has released more than 40 albums and collaborated with countless artists from Cuba, Spain and Latin American. "Yolanda" and "El Breve Espacio En Que No Estás," are two of his timeless anthems that evoke the poetic search of a man who took Latin music to a new level of creativity and credibility representing the essence of Cuban music.
Trustees Award: This Special Award is presented by vote of The Latin Recording Academy's Board of Trustees to individuals who have made significant contributions, other than performance, to the field of recording during their careers.
