Reggaeton and our Young Generations — New Trends in Music

If You listen to this song you will feel a repetitive cadence from a catchy romantic keyboard. The drums make you realize this beat is an Afro-descendant beat. If you are from the Caribbean, you will get hooked up right away. The synthesizer blends in to transmit a mood. That’s when our brains start telling us: “shh! Just listening! We love this new beat.” If you are from Nordic areas, you will pass on, or maybe not? Because troubadours and ole songs from the British isles were in your genes. Perhaps minstrel, scald or rhapsody came to your mind. Just picture that flute from Titanic’s theme song: “My heart will go on..!” This is Reggaeton..! (Romantic and slow) Formally known as Spanish reggae, was introduced slowly by Jamaican laborers when they were hired to build the Panama Canal, back in 1903. By 1970, it has evolved into a unique blended style that would be played by local street musicians. They brought their own “dance hall” and “riddim,” a patua alteration from rhythm.
