Yomo Toro preserved the traditional Puerto Rican form known as Jibaro music - a folk music from the Puerto Rican hill country that is buoyant, romantic, humorous, and extremely life-affirming. Many of Toro's lyrics were arranged 10-line verses called decimas, a poetic Spanish form that was popular as early as the 17th century For orchestration and song structure, Yomo Toro often used the bomba format. The album has the active participation of Yomo Toro, who collaborates with the cuatro (instrument of 4 rupes), the present instrument in all the songs of the project. In addition to all this, the album has been the most sold of the history of the Latin music, whose thematic is exclusively for Christmas.

Yomo Toro and his cuatro music became internationally known, when he performed the opening theme song to the 1971 Woody Allen film Bananas. Toro's reputation as a cuatro player had already grown steadily throughout the 1950s and 60's. As a studio musician for hundreds of album releases, he also played Latin jazz, classical guitar, bluegrass, and even R&B. As noted by The New York Times, "Mr. Toro absorbed all these influences, plus the African, Spanish and Creole folk traditions of his native Puerto Rico. The richness and variety of these sources is at least partly responsible for the depth, range and vitality of Mr. Toro's playing.
