The Latin Recording Academy® statement about Mario Kaminsky

February 02, 2021 -- 5:18 pm PST

Mario Kaminsky was a loved and respected music executive, and recipient of The Latin Recording Academy’s 2019 Trustees Award. After founding Microfón Argentina, Kaminsky's strength as a brilliant entrepreneur and brave tastemaker shone through. He changed the landscape of Latin music by recording such pioneering artists as Charly García, Los Chalchaleros, Luis Alberto Spinetta, and Atahualpa Yupanqui, among others.

Don Mario will be deeply missed by the entire music industry. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family during this difficult time.
