Designed to appeal to fans of the Buena Vista Social Club project, It's a Cuban Christmas gathers mostly well-known holiday standards, all performed to the irresistible rhythms of traditional Cuban dance forms. Naturally, the lyrics are all in Spanish, but English-speaking listeners won't have any trouble recognizing the songs. It's a terrifically infectious change of pace from run-of-the-mill Christmas fare.
