Warner Music Latina recording artist Jorge Drexler, winner of the 2005 Oscar for Best Song from a Film for “Al Otro Lado Del Rio” from The Motorcycle Diaries, will make his New York debut at Joe’s Pub on Monday, November 14.   His song has also been nominated for a Latin Grammy for Best Song of the Year.  The winner will be announced at the Latin Grammy ceremonies in Los Angeles on November 3

“Al Otro Lado Del Rio” was the first Spanish-language song ever to be nominated and the first-ever foreign language song in the Academy’s 77-year history to actually win the Oscar.  News of Drexler’s unbelievable accomplishment made the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Other top media outlets such as The Tonight Show, National Public Radio, the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times gave Drexler their utmost support for his first US release ECO, an April 2005 release on Warner Music.
