Sony Music Latin is a record label owned by Sony Music Entertainment. The label focuses on artists for Latin music.


In 1979, CBS Records (now Columbia Records) ended its partnership with Caytronics after eleven-years of distribution. The company established its own division for Latin music in 1980 called CBS Discos (also known as Discos CBS).[1] In 1988, CBS Records was acquired by Sony and its Latin division was renamed to Sony Discos in 1991.[2] In 2003, Sony Discos was re-branded as Sony Norte following the departure of former Sony Discos president Oscar Llord.[3] A year later, Bertelsmann Music Group (BMG) merged with Sony Music and Sony Norte was renamed to Sony BMG Norte.[4] After BMG sold its assets in 2008, Sony BMG Norte was retitled to its current name Sony Music Latin in 2009.[5]
