The origin of the word reggaeton comes from combining the English term reggae with the suffix -ón, used in the Spanish language to describe something big.

Reggaeton is a musical genre which has its roots in Latin and Caribbean music. The genre was invented, shaped and played in Puerto Rico where it got its name; most of its current artists are also from Puerto Rico. After mainstream exposure in 2004, it spread to North American, European, Asian and African audiences.

Before the music was called reggaeton, it was known as "Spanish Reggae" or Reggae en Español, travelling along mass media circuits as well as diaspora networks, popular Jamaican music spread around the world in the 1960s and '70s. Reggae arrived in places like Panama and Puerto Rico as quickly as it reached more traditional centres of migration, such as London and New York. Panama was the first country to introduce Reggae en Español. The music eventually made its way through Central America and continued evolving and coming to prominence in Puerto Rico where it became reggaeton.

In this recording, Travieso (Candido Fabre Jr.) blends musical influences of Jamaican dancehall and Trinidadian Soca with those of Cuba, such as Salsa, Son,Cumbia, Conga, Latin American hip hop, and electronica. Vocals include rapping and singing in Spanish. Lyrics tend to be derived from hip hop. In this his debut album, El Travieso (Candido Fabre Jr. ) accompanied by his father Candido Fabre Sr. and friends has produced some of the finest dance music coming out of the Island.

To'Mezclao UK Tour

"You'll hear everything from cumbia, meringue and salsa to hip-hop, funk and reggaeton. It never loses sight of the band's Cuban roots, although it is delivered with a pop sensibility that keeps things catchy and punchy without ever being formulaic. The opening merengue "Aqui Todo Ya Esta Inventao" is a perfectly formed three-minute hit. "Quiero Olividarla" should do for salsa sessions what the beats-heavy "Cuando Pasa El Tiempo" does for club dance floors. Someone get them an international tour, quick." - Jane Cornwell (Songlines March 2009)
