Classic Cuban recordings will soon have a new outlet to the world as Sony Music signed a deal Tuesday to distribute the catalog of the state-owned label. Sony, one of the three major global labels, said it would exclusively license overseas recordings from Cuba's Egrem dating as far back as the 1960s.

The same flash floods claimed at least four lives in nearby Zion National Park.
