BATON ROUGE - At 95 years old, Cuban-born musician Angela Alvarez won her first Latin Grammy for best new artist. 

Alvarez put out her debut self-titled album in 2021 that accompanied a feature-length documentary produced by her grandson Carlos Alvarez. 

Angela Alvarez grew up in Cuba and escaped to the United States in the mid-1960s, years after sending her four children to America following Cuba's revolution in 1962. Alvarez settled in Baton Rouge where she still lives.
