Se llama sabroso - ZONA FRANKA

Album name Se llama sabroso
Genre Latin / Cuban / Rap / Urban
Number of tracks 10
SE LLAMA SABROSO (They Call it Tasty) by Zona Franka (a zona franca is a duty-free port) is an exciting introduction of a style called "Changüí con flow", a fusion of traditional rural changüí with rap and other urban Cuban music. As the name of the group implies, various musical styles from around the Americas are also featured. The songs are Cuban classics re-imagined in fresh, clever and innovative new arrangements that far differ from the original versions. -- Bill Tilford of TIMBA.com

Services

Latin Music Specialists
Our catalog is 100% wholly-owned, organic, non-programmed, developed and produced from the very first note to final release, all featuring award-winning musicians, recording, mixing & mastering engineers and producers. The result is both one-stop licensing for fast, simple clearance and ultra-fresh, authentic "sabor". While our albums are released artistically in their original form, all tracks are made available in instrumental, karakoe (TV track), a capella and stem formats. We are experts in music from the Caribbean, Central and South America, as well as the afro-influenced versions from each territory and culture. African music performs a crucial role in all the indigenous rhythms from each area. Due to its highly syncretic nature, Latin American music encompasses a wide variety of styles, including popular genres such as bachata, banda, bolero, bossa nova, corrido, cumbia, mariachi, merengue, norteña, rumba, salsa, samba, son, tango, tejano, timba, trova and vallenato among many others. More recently, Latin music has been influenced by modern styles from the United States, giving rise to genres such as Latin pop, Latin rock, Latin jazz, Latin hip-hop, rap & trap, Latin urban and reggaeton.

Resources

Are you a Latin music composer and/or Spanish language lyricist currently registered with a performing rights society?
Please carefully review and listen to our catalog before submitting. We are currently NOT accepting fully produced material, only a basic track with one voice, one harmonic instrument (preferably piano, keys or guitar) and one time-keeping rhythm / beat. Something simple that presents lyrical melody against chords. Think singer-songwriter. Please fill out our contact form above with links to your previous works (audio or video links) and we may reply with a submission email address. Due to the high volume of inquiries, messages may not be answered.
