Considering the popularity of cover songs and other musical mashups, it's no wonder that the launch of the Saloote app at SXSW 2015 has already been met with such enthusiasm.
The app begins by having users choose from a list of songs that have been pre-licensed by Sony Music. Some of these hit songs include Meghan Trainer's All about the Bass or even classics like Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Want To Have Fun. The app lets users record music and merge your own creation with up to four others at the same time. There are also fun modes like karaoke and instruments that can be played to take the pressure out of going solo. Social aspects of the app include the ability to follow artists and share music made with Saloote online.
