The Boludas, a Cuban American family with roots in Bowie, continue a tradition of creating a holiday music video for their parents and grandmother to enjoy.
The Boluda family makes a Christmas music video every year as a gift for their relatives. The Cuban American family's musicmaking tradition began years ago and has become a holiday essential, along with the black beans and rice, yuca and other traditional Cuban fare.

"We always get together on Christmas Eve," said Jessica Boluda, one of the family's grandchildren. Marvin Joseph/THE WASHINGTON POST Buy Photo
