Santana Live in Singapore - Review

By Yuda

It was the third time Santana graced our tiny island but it was my first time seeing him and his wonderful team of band mates in action. Well known for pioneering rock, latin music and jazz fusion since the 1960s, the composition of his music just blew me away. The tunes that were familiar to me were just Black Magic Woman, Oye Como Va, Maria Maria and Smooth. 

At any one time, there were around 10 band members on stage, including the drums, timbales, congas, trombone, trumpet, bass, guitars, keyboard, vocals etc. The wonderful layering of 3 percussions topped by melody from the wind instruments, the keyboard, vocals and most importantly, the guitar lines from Carlos Santana himself.
