It’s only a few days before Christmas Day, but we had to get you an Oldies Sunday fix. For the month of December, we feature some of the Christmas songs you grew up on. Today’s selection finds us in Puerto Rico for Musicians/Producers Willie Colon and Hector Lavoe’s “Esta Navidad“.
Produced along with Jerry Masucci and released through Fania Records (a first for the label) in 1971, Christmas gets some Latin flavour thanks to the sounds of Willie Colon and Hector Lavoe. Willie and Hector are legends in the genre, and making Christmas music was just another extension of their respective brands, and showed that they could make gold out of anything. “Esta Navidad” was featured on the duo’s 1971 album, “Asalto Navideño“. Need some Salsa for the holidays? Tune in, and Merry Christmas when it comes!
