Herman Rodriguez-Bajandas

Fonico, LLC
New York, Miami
I have an over forty year career in music mostly involved in Latin, Jazz, and World Music on an international level. Formerly worked for Billboard, SGAE (Spain's Performing Right and Mechanical Society), SoundExchange, RMM/Universal, Navarro Music (Mexico), Tropical Budda, and my own companies. I am a major label and artist recorded Latin songwriter.
I currently represent as music publisher and/or administrator of song catalogs of iconic Latin artists Johnny Pacheco, Willie Colon, Tito Rodriguez, Bobby Valentin, Larry Harlow, Israel Kantor, Aljadaqui, and others. I had my own small Latin label, production, and publishing business in partnership with Michael Tannen (famed entertainment attorney/business manager/film producer for Paul Simon, Billy Joel, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Simon & Garfunkel, Rolling Stones, Melre Haggard, The Roches, Lily Tomlin, etc.), legendary music producer/engineer Phil Ramone, and Latin music icon and Fania Records co-founder Johnny Pacheco. I have worked and consulted for other name artists, companies, and organizations in Music, Internet Technology, Media, and Finance. Open to meeting all with an interest in good music, no matter what the genre, (love Country, Rock, Hip-Hop, etc.) but lean toward my strengths Latin, Jazz, and World Music. I have previously been a very minor conservative angel investor in a number of startup media or music companies along with others. I am a voting or professional member of NARAS, LARAS, NATAS, ASCAP, BMI, SHOF, LSHOF, HFA, NMPA, AIMP, AES, The Spanish Institute.
