17 de julio de 2018

Sergio Pizzolante, managing partner of CTMOBS announced they have partnered with Fania and Sony Music Latin to produce the TV series Sangre Nueva.

Expected to launch in early 2019, the series will follow today's biggest music stars as they revisit the classic hits of legendary Fania Records artists such as Celia Cruz, Héctor Lavoe, Johnny Pacheco, Rubén Blades, Willie Colón, Ismael Rivera, La Lupe and the Fania All-Stars.

“We are excited to bring together the world’s leading Latin artists and music producers through their shared passion for Fania’s repertoire” commented Pizzolante who is also an executive producer of the show.

The series will follow each artist as they explore Fania’s vast catalog of over 15,000 original master recordings, culminating with the artist creating their own rendition of a Fania classic.

Jorge Granier (Jane The Virgin, Nicky Jam: El Ganador), will executive produce through his Aquarius TV Banner and added: "Fania's contribution to the interest in Latin artists in unmistakable, a direct line can be traced from today's LatinX movement to the rise of Salsa in 1960's NYC".

“This is an exciting opportunity to pay tribute to Fania’s artists and to introduce some of salsa’s all-time greatest hits to new audiences,” said Fania CEO Stuart Livingston.

“Fania and its artists have made an enormous impact on Latin music that is still felt today. We’re proud to be part of a project that will help preserve this important piece of our musical heritage by keeping it alive and relevant,” expressed Sony Music US Latin president Nir Seroussi.

The series is an original concept by Mauricio Arcas, a former member of Los Amigos Invisibles, Sergio Gómez (Orígenes) and Jorge Granier. Mauricio Arcas, Aurora Ramírez, Sergio Gómez and Jorge Granier will also serve as executive producers.

The soundtrack for this series will be distributed by Sony Music US Latin. CTMOBS is represented by CAA.
