iLatin Music comes from the collaboration of three labels: Smayra Publishing and Abanico Records. We have combined our professionalism and our strength to bring you the best of the Latin world.
Smayra Publishing is a music publishing company founded in 2012 in Milan that has as its main objective the creation, support, dissemination of musical and related works and the enhancement of all forms of art directly or indirectly related to music.

Fabrizio Zoro is the artistic director and has years of experience and a significant international popularity as a DJ and music producer. Mainly linked to Latin music, he follows many other stylistic forms, which help him to constantly improve the musical intuitions of the recording projects in progress.
Laura Fossati possesses a more administrative competence for the management of all matters related to copyright, musical editions, the protection of works and also guarantees important advice to the authors and composers who collaborate with Smayra Publishing.
Annual planning structure the activity, in constant development, of the Company which, although young, already has international successes and a program for the future of considerable interest.
Thanks to an important partnership with "I Art Studios", Smayra Publishing can count on complete autonomy in pre-production, in the recording of music and on the development of the entire recording project.
An ever increasing network of contacts between professionals and the public offers an appreciable visibility and promotion to outgoing publications.
