When Salsa Magazine honored the top Latin music perfomers, it tapped resources in Bowling Green to do so. Local disc jockey and web TV producer Luis Chaluisan with Maria Hernandez helped promote the competition.
Using resources of WBGU FM and WEPAwebTV votes were tallied from around the world. More than two million votes were cast with Karibu El Son Del Caribe of Costa Rica bringing in almost 1.4 million to top the fan favorite list. The Puerto Rican band Orquesta Siglo XXI was a distant second with 632,835 votes. In all 290 acts received votes in the balloting which ended Aug. 31.  
The online magazine selected the top 40 performers for recognition. Performers came from both Latin American and North American, and included performers from Paris and Munich, Germany.
When it came time to send out awards, Chaluisan, who lives in Bowling Green, contracted with Becky Laabs of art-a-site! in downtown to create the trophies. The awards were mailed out this week.
