Musician, record producer and writer Rachel Faro visits World Cafe for part two of this week’s special holiday edition of Latin Roots. During Wednesday’s episode, Faro discusses Christmas celebrations in Puerto Rico and how they differ from the holiday traditions in the Puerto Rican communities of New York. One of the songs she plays, by Willie Colon, is a classic that brings traditional music from the island to the big city.

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