Traigo Esta Trulla

In December / Christmas of 2017 in Bedford- Texas, Ernesto González and with the help of his friend Jaime Vives start an online movement to promote parrandas online to unite all the diaspora with the local people who still in Puerto Rico and just suffer the hit of the Hurricane Maria a category five Hurricane, we want to bring song as a  relief of the pain they have, the parrandas is a typical way to share the christmas spirit during Christmas in Puerto Rico.
 
Then in order to promote the concept he approach a local radio station on the island to support the idea in order that the people in the island celebrate with the people around the world with the concept: Traigoestatrulla but he ask for the right of the songs, after a long research he find Herminio de Jesus who is the author of the song and he love the idea and support it by giving tu us the right to use his song, around the 3,000 join the facebook group and people celebrate online the tradicional parrandas in an virtual social environment.
 
 After the acceptance of the parrandas virtuales, Ernesto saw the opportunity to celebrate the Sansebastián Festival in Dallas/Fortworth and approach a local restaurant El Jibarito Latin Kitchen and a local Radio Station Ritmo 95.5 to support the event idea.   More than 6,000 show at the event and was a total success.
 
In 2019 we incorporate Traigo esta Trulla as a non for profit organization and now we want to keep growing the organization and unite more and more  Puerto Ricans around the world to show and educate everyone about who we are and how we celebrate Christmas.
