Santana’s First

Given his spiritual predilections, it seems odd that Carlos Santana had never performed in concert in India before.

He finally did in late October when his band played two gigs, one in Bangalore and another in Delhi for the Formula One Rocks event in conjunction with the Indian Grand Prix. 

The latter concert took place at Galgotia University, with opening band local favorites Soulmate, whose guitarist, Rudy Wallang, is considered one of India’s best. Santana joined the group during its opening set.
