Midem Latin American Forum

Midem places an emphasis on supporting music professionals the world over, encouraging business development and talent discovery.

This forum has been developed to assist with the structuring and professionalisation of the music industry in Latin America to stimulate international exchanges.

Midem is a business enabler, helping and supporting new territories to structure and develop their local music markets thanks to a unique programme of knowledge sharing, networking, inspiration, conferences and meetings.

Midem has created the Midem Latin American Forum, a long-term programme designed to establish business and artistic relationships between Latin America and professionals from the rest of the world. The forum aims to develop and sustain the structuring of local and regional music ecosystems and international business in Latin America.

Gente de Zona and Michel Vega

In this exclusive session during Midem 2020, multi Grammy award-winning Cuban duo, Gente de Zona, will discuss their international rise, with Michel Vega, leading Latin music executive, who co-founded Magnus Media with Marc Anthony. With the 2014 smash hit, Bailando, Cuban duo, Gente de Zona, delivered the first global Latin hit of the streaming age. Since then, they have revolutionised urban, tropical and pop music with global hits and stellar collaborations.

Instrumental to their international rise, Michel Vega, alongside Marc Anthony, has built Magnus Media, as a multifaceted music company providing 360 tailor-made services to its artists.
