Indie music publisher Spirit Music Group has partnered with Latin music label and publisher Sunflower Entertainment Group to launch Spirit Music Latino, a new division of Spirit Music Group dedicated to Latin songwriters, artists and catalogs.
The deal will have Spirit administering Sunflower’s existing catalog and partnering on new signings. In turn, Sunflower will be incentivized to bring new signings to Spirit Music Latino.
The launch pairs two very unique and highly marketable catalogs. Sunflower, founded by Jamar Chess and Juan Carlos Barguil, has an extensive Latin publishing catalog that includes Colombia’s fabled Discos Fuentes and Codiscos, as well as works by Dominican artists like Zacarías Ferreira and Mozart La Para. Much of the music for Netflix series Narcos, for example, comes from Sunflower.
