Santana and Carabao to serenade Bangkok this February

Maria, mariaaaaaa. If you’re of a certain generation then we’re pretty sure this is your favorite Santana song. If “Black Magic Woman” is more your jam, then you probably don’t identify as a millennial or you just have great taste. In which case, let’s hang out.

Either way, get excited, because the grandmaster guitarist himself will be serenading Bangkokians on February 29, 2016. Carlos Santana will take to the stage at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani and he’ll be joined by local rock legends Carabao.

Santana rose to fame in the 1960’s and 1970’s, when there were few Latino musicians in America’s burgeoning rock scene. He got his start all the way back at the Woodstock Festival in 1969. At the time, his band Santana was unknown to the massive crowds in New York, but after an eleven-minute instrumental rendition of “Soul Sacrifice" his guitar skills quickly became a thing of legend.

In more recent memory, Santana’s 2000 album “Supernatural” featured collaborations with artists like Rob Thomas, Eric Clapton, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Cee Lo Green. The album won 9 Grammy awards and “Maria, Maria” became a classic.

Santana made history in Thailand with sell-out shows dating back to 1994, 1996, 2003, 2011 and 2013. 2013 is also the year that Santana and Carabao jammed together on stage, much to the appreciation of Thai rock fans.

Carabao was started by Thai university students in the early 1980’s. The name means buffalo in Tagalog, perhaps an homage to the Philippines, where the band members met. The symbol of strength and perseverance also conotes the working class life, which is the theme of much of Carabao’s music.

 Both the themes and the sounds, a mix of Northeastern Thai folk with Latin beats, quickly resonated with all Thais, making Carabao the most popular and successful Thai band of all time.

Now you can catch these two legendary acts together at Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani on Februay 29, 2016, as part of the global Santana Luminosity Tour 2016.
