Based around the exciting dance rhythms of Santana’sLatin music, OYE SANTANAis no ordinary tribute to Carlos Santana’s music. More a party than a concert, this is a feast of Latin music, superb musicianship and hit songs, faithfully re-creating the music of Santana. They bring a powerful and melodic drive to Santana’s Latin rock style, which they play with power, passion and perfectionensuring a fantastic high energy, engagingand funevent. The music of Carlos Santana is a mixture of Samba, Smooth Latinballads, Bossa Novasand Latin style rock. Oye Santana play all the hits including the Grammy award-winning Smoothplus Maria Maria, She’s Not There, Black Magic Woman, Samba Pa Ti, Oye Como Va, Jingo and Corazon Espinado.The six-piece band line up consists of a superb "Carlos Santana” who looks and sounds identical tothe great man himself. Superb Spanish and English speaking vocalists compliment them. Their blend of electric and Spanish guitar songs blend perfectly with the authentic percussion section and virtuoso keyboards. The exuberance of the performance itselfis what wins the hearts (and the dancing feet) of audiences from Salsa eveningsto sold-out theatres; from intimate partiesto thronging festivals; from the UK to events all over Europe.Above all, it’s the audience reactionthat tells you that Oye Santana is special. Close your eyes and you can’t tell the difference,said one promoter; the best tribute band I’ve seensaid another. But from their very first gig 8 years ago, people have been commenting on the sheer funOye Santana bring to every stage theyplay on.
