“MadMusick speaks to a young global audience,” said Ana Rosa Santiago, Vice President Latin Music at UMPG. “While they specialize in urban music, they work across genres and generations, writing and producing music with artists from many different backgrounds. I’m thrilled to welcome them to UMPG.”
