Downtown Music Publishing recently announced a worldwide publishing agreement with Codigo Music, which acquired the seminal New York-based Latin label Fania Records back in 2009. Under the deal, Downtown will administrate and represent Fania’s songs catalogue.

Confirming the new alliance, Downtown CEO Justin Kalifowitz told reporters: “Fania was a New York City institution. Their investment, promotion and celebration of some of New York’s greatest talents played an enormous role in the development of our city’s diverse musical heritage. I am honoured that we can play a small part in promoting this incredible piece of New York City history”.
