A rare Latin urban Christmas track by two Latinx acts and a fresh throwback to the big band sound recalling Hollywood’s motion picture musicals of the ’40s (think Gene Kelly) highlight some of the season’s latest Latin Christmas songs that pop. Reimagined classics sparkle and new, bold and original works dazzle.
Here are some of our favorite Latin Christmas songs to warm the holiday spirits.
Fiesta En Navidad, Vol. 4 (Various artists): More than 30 tracks make up the fourth edition of this tropical-themed Christmas album that has legs beyond Christmas as the 2020 countdown approaches. The carefully curated project is pure high-energy from JN Records: classics such as “Voy A Parrandear” from Tito Rojas and new music alike will move you, literally, including the salsa track by Ramón Rodriguez “Por Estar Pensando En Ti” with Luisito Ayala & La Puerto Rican Power. The catchy merengue song “A Que Tu Viniste,” performed by David Kenton and composed by David Peguero, makes a case for all: take time out to enjoy life.
