Twin Cities get ready to greet Carlos Santana with the Doobie Brothers to the Xcel Energy Center on Aug 3! Music legend Carlos Santana has amassed an iconic body of work by pioneering a unique fusion of rock, Latin and jazz. On his new album, Africa Speaks, released today on Concord Records, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist goes deeper and further than ever before to create one of his most groundbreaking albums yet. Inspired by the melodies, sounds and rhythms of Africa, he enlisted legendary producer Rick Rubin, convened with his band at Rubin’s Shangri La Studios in Malibu, and recorded an astonishing number of tracks, many of them in one take. Another dramatic element in the creation of Africa Speaks came in the form of Spanish singer Buika, whose heavenly lead vocals cast a magical spell throughout the album.
His current tour stops include:
Aug 3 at Xcel Energy Center in St Paul MN
Aug 4 at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatere in Chicago IL
Aug 6 at Budweiser State in Toronto ON
Aug 7 at Blossom Music Center in Cleveland OH
Aug 9 at Ruoff Home Mortgage Music Center in Indianapolis IN
