Jambl is an instant music-maker with a strong focus on online and live collaboration. Aiming to bring music-making to the masses, the app allows anyone to create music, enabling total creative freedom with no technical or musical knowledge. Its music engine lets users of any age or musical experience create and share music instantly. Users can add videos with musical filters and share music both within the app and online, as well as participate in user charts and competitions.
“Our team is obsessed with giving everyone in the world the instant ability to express themselves through music. Billions of people think music is not for them and that they are not talented enough, but we are here to change that and to help them experience the many benefits of being active and playing music,” – says Gad Baruch Hinkis, founder of Jambl. “We are thrilled to join forces with Gismart, grow our user base and have the resources to continue to develop Jambl as far as we know it can go.” Jambl is the first of many products planned over the coming years by the Jambl team. The team is also working on an educational game within the app that would help users learn more about different music styles and to improve their skills.
