LP released by Musart.

Discos Musart is a Mexican record label founded in 1948.[1] It is headquartered in Mexico City and remains one of the country's biggest labels, focusing on Mexican music, as well as international releases licensed from various labels around the world. Over the years it has had several imprints such as Trebol, Oasis and Balboa Records.[1] During the 1950s, Musart distributed albums by Cuban label Panart in Mexico.[2]

Until Capitol Records opened in Mexico in 1965, recordings by The Beatles were released by Musart Records in Mexico. Capitol re-releases now sometimes use completely different covers so detecting whether a Capitol version is actually an original Musart album or not can be difficult.[3]

Musart was acquired by Concord Bicycle Music (now Concord)[4] in 2016.[5]


The following artists have been part of the Musart roster:
