A few months ago, the event producer of the XIII Latin Grammy Awards got in touch with me about a slideshow I’d posted on Guitarkadia back in September of 2008 of the late Cuatro legend Yomo Toro. Mr. Toro was notified earlier this year that he’d receive a Trustees Award from the Latin Recording Academy during this year’s Latin Grammy Awards. He passed away on June 30, 2012.

I was honored to be asked to contribute to this tribute and the Academy was kind was enough to send me a few copies of the program book. I don’t pose for pictures with artists I shoot, but I did on that occasion. I had to make my first photo essay for Guitarkadia memorable somehow.

 

Here’s the cover of the program book and the photo on Page 66. The award was accepted by his daughter and widow at the ceremony (At 24:24 min).
