Mas de un Siglo ("More than a century"), the 2018 Special, focuses on the last 125 years of music in Puerto Rico, in celebration of Banco Popular’s 125th anniversary. This production presents a magical tour by decades and highlights the various forms of music and genres that characterized each. This journey allows you to travel from 1893 to the present while enjoying rhythms, beats and sounds that range from bomba and danza to Pop and urban ballad.
This number purchases the CD of the songs of the Special, as well as two additional tracks.
The DVD of the musical production Más De Un Siglo ("More than a century") presents an hour of music and interviews about the musical
genres that characterized the music scene in Puerto Rico over the last 125 years. This is the Special that will air on television on the first Sunday of December.
In 1993, for their 100th anniversary, Banco Popular (de Puerto Rico) began making musical TV specials for the Christmas season. Originally on cassette tapes and VHS, the annual specials are now offered on DVD and CD.
They incorporate the best musical traditions of Puerto Rico and Latin America, and include a who's who of the international music industry, i.e, Pedro Capó, Olga Tañón, El Gran Combo, Rubén Blades, Juan Luis Guerra, Ricky Martin, Shakira, Juanes, Marc Anthony, among many others music icons.
Isla and IslaOnline.com have offered the special every year since 1995. We still carry the specials that are available from other years.
The musical specials also raise funds, through the sale of the CD and DVD, to support the work of the Banco Popular Foundation.
