  • 1. THE ORIGIN OF REGGAETON By: Olivier Charles
  • 2. WHAT IS REGGAETON?
    • Reggaeton is sweeping the Latin music world with its irrepressible blend of tropical Latin and reggae rhythms. Today many of the most popular reggaeton artists come from Puerto Rico, but you can't keep this music from sailing out to the rest of the world.
  • 3. WHAT IS REGGAETON?
    • The distinctive sound of today's reggaeton is a mix of Jamaican dancehall rhythms, derived from reggae, and Latin merengue, bomba, plena and sometimes salsa. It's heavily percussive beat is called "dembow" and comes from Trinidad's 'soca' music; it fuses electronic dance music, hip-hop elements and Spanish / Spanglish rap to form a compelling, driving sound that has been embraced by hispanic urban youth worldwide.
  • 4. ORIGINS OF REGGAETON
    • Not too many people know about the origins of Reggaeton. Most people would believe that it originated in Puerto Rico but ask any Panamanian and they have a different take on the issue.
  • 5. ORIGINS OF REGGAETON
    • Historically there has been an invisible line that has segregated Jamaican music and other Latin dance styles. But that line was breached in Panama, a country with a significant Jamaican population that had migrated south to work on the Panama Canal in the early 20th century. There’s a heated debate about whether reggaeton originated in Panama or Puerto Rico. While it seems obvious that the roots are Panamanian, some of the best know (and earliest) purveyors of today’s reggaeton sounds come from Puerto Rico, so the confusion is easily understood.
  • 6. MISUNDERSTANDINGS OF THE ORIGIN
    • The Misunderstandings of the origin are that although the roots are clearly Panamanian, the best known and earliest purveyors of today’s reggaeton sounds come from Puerto Rico. So the Misunderstanding can be easily understood.
  • 7. CARRIBEAN IMMIGRATION TO PANAMA
    • The Carribeans migrated to Panama to work on the Panama Canal for money and freedom.
  • 8. REGGAETON INSTRUMENTS
    • The instruments used to create the beat for a reggaeton song are a sampler , a bass, a synthesizer and a drum machine.
  • 9. ARTISTS IN THE UNITED STATES
    • N.O.R.E, a New York-based rapper, and his producing of Nina Sky’s 2004 hit Oye Mi Canto, which also had reggaeton artists Daddy Yankee and Tego Calderon featuring in it, reggaeton quickly spread throughout the United States.
  • 10. HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN AROUND?
    • Reggaeton has been here on the earth since the early 1990s in Puerto Rico. But the entire world learned of it in 2004, due to Nina Sky’s 2004 hit Oye Mi Canto .
