This Thanksgiving, dig into some classic favorites.

Music has always been a language of the world, a reflection of the times and a mechanism for healing. But for Latinos, music is simply a visceral element deep-rooted in our way of life; this is especially reflected during holidays such as Thanksgiving. 

During the season of gratitude, Latino families around the country congregate over Tia's famous arroz con gandules and Mama's lip-smacking pernil, but never without a mean category of traditional cuts to soundtrack an evening of community indulgence.  

This Thanksgiving, dig into some classic favorites -- from Johnny Ventura's “Salsa Pa Tu Lechon” to Iris Chacon's “Caramelo Y Chocolate” to Silvio Mora's “Llego El Pavo” -- alongside that second helping of sweet potato pie. Enjoy!
