1934 - today
Discos Fuentes Edimúsica S.A., founded by Antonio Fuentes in 1934, is a pioneering Colombian record company and one of the oldest in Latin America.
It played a crucial role in introducing genres like cumbia, fandango, merengue, porro, salsa, and Colombian rock. Often compared to Motown, Discos Fuentes reached its peak in the 1960s and early 1970s.
The company produced Colombia's first compilation album, "14 Cañonazos Bailables," known for its provocative covers.
By 2018, it had released 58 volumes and became the first Colombian record label to record in compact disc format.
After Antonio Fuentes' death in 1985, the company expanded into video production and acquired other small record companies in the country.
