Tumi Music (Editorial Limited) is the publishing wing of Tumi Music, which is affiliated to Music Sales UK, with offices in all major cities including: London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Madrid, Berlin and Copenhagen and is represented by many agents all over the world.
Tumi has been publishing music since 1993 - our catalogue of Latin American writers is therefore impressively diverse and expansive. We are proud of the fact that we publish works by many Latin American writers from isolated small towns or villages that otherwise would have little chance to publish their works.
Among many exclusive writers are Cándido Fabré (Cuban son, Salsa), Yusimil Bridon (Yusa - Jazz, Fusion of trova), Edgar Villarroel (Andean melodies), Nedule Montsvet (Papa Noel) (Conglese rumba). Others include people such as Bobby Caracasses (Latin Jazz), Mauricio Venegas (Fusion of Andean and western melodies), Felix Baloy (Cuban Son), David Alvarez, Pedro Jesus Diaz, Lazaro Blanco, Gustavo Cabaña, Lucia Huerga, Rey Crespo, Domingo Candelaria, Alberto Flores, Josef Koumbas, Andy Gola, Sergio Lago Ortega, Papi Oviedo, Elio Reve, Alberto Tosca, Saldanha Rolim. All these names demonstrate the diversity of the writers whose works are published by Tumi and managed Worldwide by Music Sales.
Since 1983 Tumi Music has been at the forefront of the vast and diverse field of Latin music. In that year whilst in Bolivia, Mo Fini, founder of Tumi Music, heard the music of Rumillajta and in particular the poignant voice of Edgar Villarroel, and began to promote them. By organising the first ever European tour by an Andean folk band and releasing City of Stone, Rumillajta's groundbreaking debut album, Tumi Music was born. Taking our name from a ceremonial Inca dagger called the 'Tumi' (one of the most important symbols of heritage for Latin Americans) Tumi Music's objective is to present not only the very best of the popular sounds around such as Son and Salsa but also to build up an ecclectic selection of excellent artists in as diverse fields as Cuban Conga and pre-Hispanic Ocarina music making it possible for these to continue and prosper.
Tumi Music has built up a solid reputation based on pro-active artist promotion, a large touring network, exciting recordings, quality packaging and a long term committment to A&R, regardless of trends or the latest musical fads. Every Tumi Music album is a quality recording, produced by artists expert in their fields and mastered in the highest quality sound studios. Furthermore every production is a carefully thought-out project in itself: expertly designed and beautifully packaged. Today Tumi Music is regarded with the utmost loyalty and respect by all its musicians in Latin America. By realising the potential of various musical styles such as Andean folk music and Cuban music well before any of its competitors, Tumi Music has built up an enviable catalogue of 100 new recordings by some of the greatest artists in Latin American and Caribbean music.
Tumi Music is the result of almost 30 years of travelling, eating, sharing and living in Latin America. It gives us great pleasure to be able to share with you through music some of these moments and to explore the cultural heritage of this rich continent. We pride ourselves on promoting with enthusiasm and foresight, popular, new and traditional music as well as forms of music which were previously unknown.
