Sony Music Signs with Cuba – Havana

Sony Music Entertainment and the Empresa de Grabaciones y Ediciones Musicales (EGREM) signed a historical agreement on Tuesday in Havana that will allow many Cuban musicians and recordings to enter the international market through the wide door of the US music industry.Cuban music made and recorded on the island since 1960 hasn’t received more important news (from a commercial standpoint) in the many decades of isolation and limitations in terms of international distribution.The agreement was signed by executives from the two companies at Havana’s renowned Estudio Areito 101, a venue where a plethora of Cuban and foreign artists have been recording music since the 1940s, sealing more than two years of negotiations which profited from the winds of change blown by the newly-established relations between Cuba and the United States.
