Sony to distribute Cuban music to world


Classic Cuban recordings will soon have a new outlet to the world as Sony Music signed a deal Tuesday to distribute the catalog of the state-owned label.

Sony, one of the three major global labels, said it would exclusively license overseas recordings from Cuba’s Egrem dating as far back as the 1960s.

“This landmark agreement will help expand international awareness and appreciation of Cuban culture, Cuba’s rich musical heritage and its many wonderful artists,” Doug Morris, chief executive officer of Sony Music Entertainment, said in a statement.
