Carlos Santana will play in Jakarta


Mexican-American Rock Guitarist Carlos Santana is one of the few musicians in the world who accompanied me in my journey of life.

I first listened to Santana's popular hit Black Magic Woman on the radio when I was a little boy in the early '70s, and had got me mesmerized. I loved this song and his other song in Santana's record album Abraxas, that my dad bought me that album

After that Santana released other nice albums, among others Love, Devotion & Surrender, but none of them was as popular as his first album.

In 2000, Santana released the album Supernatural (including the hit Maria-Maria) that won nine Grammy Awards.

In 2002, Santana released the album Shaman, and one of the hits i.e. The song Game of Love won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.

And according to The Jakarta Globe, Carlos Santana will play at the International Java Jazz Festival which will be held from 4 March (Friday) until 6 March (Sunday) at the International EXPO in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, and Santana will play on Friday and Saturday.
 
Tickets can be ordered Online : Rp 747.500,- for Friday, and Rp 862.500,- for Saturday PLUS Daily Pass of Rp 402.500,- OR Three Day Pass of Rp 862.500,- (all prices are inclusive Tax).

Though I've to admit to me the real thing happened in the sixties (Dylan, Hendrix, Stones, Beatles, Joplin), these pop music artists of the seventies are dear to me too. If only for the guitar slicks by Santana.

When punk came on stage I disconnected.

@Deasy,
It's good to know that Santana has a niece who has Indonesian descendant.

@King Money,
Fyi, I always visit and comment the blogs of those who visit my blog, I even follow them.
I'll go to yours now.

@Attayaya_Komodo,
Memang pantas lagu Maria-Maria mendapat Grammy Award.

@Dinoo,
Memang lagu yang bagus.

@Colson,
Bob Dylan, Beatles,Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin were great musicians.
Although I didn't like punk music but there were some punk bands that I like e.g the Police, and also a Dutch band that sang Fred Astaire.

permainan gitar carlos santana sangat hebat... bukti bahwa untuk menjadi musisi sukses tak harus menjadi penyanyi

Multibrand said...

R10,
Anda tepat sekali! Santana adalah bukti suksesnya seorang gutarist dan arranger yang bukan penyanyi.
