Retuning to the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2016 after a gap of a year, Multiple Grammy winner and global guitar music icon Carlos Santana is set to headline the stage on February 26.
With no doubt, the sound of Santana is one of the world’s best-known musical signatures delivered with a level of passion and soul. Last year, he reached another milestone after the release of his album Corazon where he became only the second recording artist to have a top ten album on the charts for six consecutive decades. He has sold millions of records, toured the world countless times, influenced legions of musicians and has become a musical ambassador to fans around the world.
“It’s an immense honor to have SANTANA on the Jazz Festival bill and grace the stage once more this coming February. We are thrilled that Dubai was one of the selected cities worldwide for his tour next year. His previous show in 2014 was a timely sell-out; it was exceptional and had witnessed a high level of audience interaction with an unexpected extension of the performance. We are very excited to announce the return of the legend in 2016; icons like Santana will surely attract the crowd from all generations and also from countries in the region.” stated Anthony Younes, CEO and founder of Chillout Productions.
The lead to the great SANTANA show can’t be better than the Argentinian group “La Bomba De Tiempo” on February 26; an ensemble of Seventeen percussionists will embrace the stage with a unique and unrepeatable show as their music is generated live on stage trough the dialogue between the musicians and their director, which creates the improvisation based on a code of more than 70 signs made with the hands.
The opening act for SANTANA show promises a magical time as percussionists on stage will interact with the audience bringing its energy, dancing and listening and creating a true ritual of rhythm and percussion.
We’re thrilled to announce that the legendary Santana will join the line up of #DubaiJazzFest 2016! Tickets go on sale today at 12 NN!
