Tumi Music – ‘The Latin American link bringing two worlds together through music’.
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 eclectic 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 commitment 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.
