Watch Margarita’s new musical video “Cuando suba marea” at www.youtube.com Spreading some Margarita love! Margarita Henriquez (18 yo) from Panama who won 2008 Latin American Idol, yes the South American version of AI, sings Reggaeton. Reggaeton is a modification of Raggamuffin that, in turn, developed from Reggae and Hip Hop. Reggaeton is a relatively new music style that has become increasingly popular in the 90’s. 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. While it seems obvious that the roots are Panamanian, some of the best known (and earliest) purveyors of today’s reggaeton sounds come from Puerto Rico. Panamanian El General (Edgardo A. Franco) was one of the pioneers of the Reggaeton sound, returning to Panama from an accounting job in the States to record the new dancehall fusion. During the 1990s, the reggae sound became more popular in Panama and continued to change as elements of hip hop, rap and other carribean music fused with the older reggae dancehall style.
