GrooveMaker Reggaeton (iPhone) Released

Reggaeton, according to Wikipedia, is a form of urban music that became popular with Latin American youth in the early 1990s. After its mainstream exposure in 2004, it spread to North American, European and Asian audiences. It is a form of Jamaican reggae that has been adapted to the Spanish language and culture of the Central America country known as Panama.

IK Multimedia, the makers of GrooveMaker and its various incarnations for the iPhone, has come up GrooveMaker Reggaeton, a music making application featuring the sounds of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Check out the press release below on how you can pour some ‘gasolina” to your masterpieces in GrooveMaker Reggaeton:
