- Introducing SABOR: A Mini Series By Sony Music Latin
As part of Sony Music’s celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, highlighting the contributions, culture and impact of the Latinx experience, we are excited to share a new video series. SABOR: Celebrating Our Cuisine is a three-part series featuring artists from Sony Music Latin preparing a local dish from their country. While each dish has staple products used in Hispanic households, the flavors from each region could not be more unique.
Episode 1 features Kany García of Puerto Rico, preparing pastelon de carne con crema de Malanga.
Kany released her first album Cualquier Día in 2007. Over the past 12 years she has written and performed some of the biggest hits in Latin pop, such as “Hoy Ya Me Voy,” “Alguien” and “Duele Menos,” and is the winner of five Latin GRAMMYs®. Her fifth album Soy Yo (2018) garnered four Latin GRAMMY® nominations and was named one of the 50 Best Albums of the Year—across all genres—by Billboard magazine. From this album came the ballad “Para Siempre,” which surpassed 64 million views on YouTube a year after its release.

Episode 2 features Debi Nova of Costa Rica, preparing Gallo Pinto.
Costa Rican born; L.A.-based Debi Nova signed her first record label deal at 17. In 2004 she hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart with “One Rhythm,” a remix, featured on the soundtrack for the EA Sports video game FIFA Football 2005. Her single “Drummer Boy” charted #5 on the Billboard Dance Charts, but she is best known as one of the most sought-after singer/songwriters. Debi writes, co-writes and produces in both English and Spanish, and has been part of 6 Grammy nominated projects.

Episode 3 features Dolli Irigoyen of Argentina, preparing empanadas.
Dolli was born in General Las Heras, a small town in the province of Buenos Aires. Her passion for cooking, which was passed on by her grandmother, lead her to pursue a career in culinary arts. She’s a great friend of Sony Music Latin since the collaboration in the launch of her book and 3 DVDs “Dolli Irigoyen En Su Cocina” (Dolli Irigoyen In Her Kitchen). Besides owning many important restaurants, she is also a permanent member of the French Culinary Academy and owner of “Espacio Dolli,” a studio where young chefs focus on developing new and creative methods within the kitchen.
