Víctor Manuelle has achieved his goal of making a Christmas album. But this holiday CD isn’t your typical compilation of Christmas carols. Una navidad a mi estilo (My Type of Christmas) is packed with Caribbean rhythms and includes original songs written by the artist, along with Ramón Rodríguez and Casiano Betancourt.
The Puerto Rican musician, 37, is trying out a new marketing strategy with the album by simultaneously releasing three singles on the radio: “Lechón, lechón, lechón,” “Yo traigo la parranda” and “Los polvos del Sahara.” The songs feature backup singers and a band that jam out in the traditional Puerto Rican bomba and plena styles, and we’ve got the whole trio for you here.
Listen to “Lechón, lechón, lechón
