Samba Pa Ti time

By Jo Finzi pictureFor four decades the fluid sound of Carlos Santana’s “world music” has spread around the globe.

At age five Carlos started his musical career by learning the violin but some years later he picked up a guitar and the rest, as they say, is history.

He started his band in the 60s and by the end of the decade he was a living legend, playing the ultimate venue - Woodstock - in 1969. 90 million records and ten Grammy awards later, Carlos and company are still going strong.

Watch Santana cast their spell in Dubai on the 15th of this month. For more details on the concert - part of the “Live your Light” tour, call 04 3676699 or log onto

Tickets cost Dhs295 to Dhs995.
