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!
