MIAMI (NOV. 12, 2019) — The Official Latin GRAMMY® After-Party will close out the one of a kind  Latin GRAMMY Week celebration honoring 20 years of excellence in Latin music. The event will take place on Thursday, Nov. 14, at the iconic Hakkasan Nightclub, immediately following the milestone 20th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards®.

Latin GRAMMY attendees will have a unique opportunity to dance the night away in the 80,000 square feet venue to the beats of Latin electronic music pioneer Mr. Pauer hitting the main floor. A music connoisseur of percussive rhythms from around the world, Mr. Pauer created his signature sound, "Electrópico," a fusion of electronic dance music and other genres—including salsa, zouk, reggae, cumbia, dancehall, merengue, and kuduro—producing a unique sound born in Miami that will include 20 years of great Latin hits. 

On a different floor, Latin GRAMMY winner and legendary jazz trumpeter Charlie Sepúlveda will delight guests who look for a relaxed environment with an exclusive presentation in the Latin Jazz Lounge along with special guests, including Latin GRAMMY nominee Paula Arenas, Latin GRAMMY and GRAMMY nominees C4 Trío, Latin GRAMMY and GRAMMY winner Luis Enrique, and contemporary folk music group KerreKe.
