The power… the passion… the perfection
Welcome to Oye Santana – four decades’ worth of hits from Black Magic Woman and Oye Como Va via Carnaval, Dance Sister Dance and She’s Not There to Smooth, Maria Maria and Corazón Espinado – played with power, passion and perfection.
Prepare yourself for guitar wizardry, keyboard mastery, astonishing vocals and powerhouse brass, and a rhythm section with more groove than you could shake a pair of maracas at. You’ll be open-mouthed, we promise. But there’s more to Oye Santana than that. Every date played is a show and every track a fiesta – come and listen, come and dance, come and party!
About the band:
Oye Santana – the band
What makes Oye Santana so good? First of all the music. There’s a treasury of more than four decades of Santana catalogue to draw on, and every number in our set is a gem in its own right. Then there’s the musicianship. Check out the credentials of Milan ‘Carlos’ Webb; of Gez Kahan and Hector Gomez; the astonishing breadth of abilities that Auriol Kobani and Paul Murphy, Pete Lockwood and Jon Quirk bring to our on-stage set-up. This really is a feast of musical talent.
Next there’s the authenticity. We could go off on self-indulgent flights of fancy, but we don’t. We painstakingly recreate the original Santana arrangements of the big hits that you know and love to bring you the true Santana sound. But playing the right notes is only a start. There’s much more to being the Best Santana Tribute in the World…
There’s the passion. Carlos Santana’s guitar playing is instantly recognizable not just because of his tone or his trademark licks, but because of the emotion he puts into every note he plays. Oye Santana has that covered. And there’s the good-time feel. Every track is a fiesta – come and dance, come and party. We’ve got that covered too.
And every Oye Santana performance is a show, a visual feast of lights and action that will have you singing along, smiling along and dancing along from the first chink of a tambourine to the explosive finale. You’re going to love Oye Santana
