Saharan rock band Tinariwen wins new best world music award at Grammys

LOS ANGELES – Tuareg desert rockers Tinariwen have won the new best world music album award for « Tassili » at the Grammys.

Tinariwen, based in Mali, won one of the newly-combined categories at Sunday’s Grammy’s. The world music category had been previously been divided into traditional and contemporary categories.

Since last year, the number of Grammy categories were trimmed from 109 to 78. The move upset some musicians, and a protest was planned outside the Staples Center. Eliminated categories include Latin jazz, Hawaiian music and Zydeco or Cajun music.

Cachao, the Cuban mambo pioneer who died in 2008, won best tropical Latin album. Mexican rockers Mana won for best Latin pop, rock or urban album.

Los Tigres Del Norte won the Banda or Norteno award, while Pepe Aguilar won in the regional Mexican or Tejano category.
