Latin Roots #51 - A Puerto Rican Christmas At Home And In New York

A Puerto Rican Christmas At Home And In New York

December 25, 2013 - Artist, record producer and consultant Rachel Faro joins us on Latin Roots today to talk about Christmas in Puerto Rico and in the Puerto Rican communities in New York. She jokingly says that Christmas in Puerto Rico is 25% of the year with much partying and caroling. She’ll play us a Willie Colon classic that brings traditional music from the island to the big city. Rachel has put together a splendid Puerto Rican Christmas Spotify playlist as well.

Latin Roots is made possible by a grant from The Wyncote Foundation.

Session Setlist:
VENIMOS DESDE LEJOS / by Travy Joe / (single)
AIRES DE NAVIDAD / by Willie Colon / from Asalto Navideno
