Asalto Navideño, Vol. I is the first Christmas themed album recorded by Willie Colón and Héctor Lavoe in December 1970. The album features the participation of Yomo Toro, who collaborates with the Puerto Rican Cuatro (the instrument present in all the songs of the production). It also has the participation of Johnny Pacheco (member of the Fania All – Stars). Asalto Navideño, Vol. I have been the best-selling album in the history of Latin music, for the successful fusion of typical Latin sounds, such as the pump, traditional Puerto Rican air that managed to capture the public and especially the community Latina, based in the United States. Such was the success of this album that Fania Records published three years later, “Asalto Navideño, Vol. II”.

Asalto Navideño, Vol. I has a total of 8 songs, among which are the greatest hits: “Aires de Navidad”, “Esta Navidad”, “La Murga” (tribute to the traditional Panamanian music) and “Canto a Borinquen”, which consists of a dedication to “Borinquen”, a name which Latinos know to Puerto Rico, which is also the birthplace of many of the participants of the album.

Nowadays, the album and its deluxe edition (which includes the Vol. 2), are an invaluable object for all experts and collectors, and is listed as one of the best albums in the history of Latin music.

Willie Colón during his 50th Anniversary tour 2017-2018 on the American continent, will continue to delight audiences with a musical repertoire of more than 50 years in which he earned with effort and talent a privileged place among the most recognized and admired figures of the genre of the SALSA.

“This 50th Anniversary Tour has surpassed my expectations

My sincere thanks to all the fans that come out to show their support and affection. My gratitude to the promoters who decided to take a chance on me. Lastly, to my crew, that has given their energies and talent to make each presentation a success”. Willie Colón
