For Colombians, music and partying are a fundamental part of the culture. Any reason is enough to end up dancing and celebrating, and Christmas and New Year's Eve festivities are no exception. 

In fact, in Colombia, Christmas festivities begin on Dec. 7 with the night of the candles, continue from Dec. 16 to 24 with the novena de aguinaldos and end with Christmas, and New Year's Eve. 

Year after year, the same Christmas songs are repeated in every house, on the radio stations, at parties and gatherings. There is hardly a Colombian who does not know what "Faltan cinco pa las 12" is or who Pastor López or Guillermo Buitrago are.  

This tradition of Christmas music began in the 60s and 70s when tropical music orchestras were gaining strength and touring the country during the holidays turning their songs into hits. Many of these orchestras are Venezuelan, such as Billo's Caracas Boys, another tradition shared by the two neighboring countries. 

So, if you are already in Christmas mode and want to put the party note to the celebration, this is a Colombian playlist that does not fail:

Año Nuevo - Billo’s Caracas Boys
 
El Año Viejo - Tony Camargo
 

 

Mensaje de Navidad - Diomedes Díaz
