Based around the exciting dance rhythms of Santana’s Latin music, Oye Santana is no ordinary tribute to Carlos Santana’s music. More a party than a concert, this is a feast of Latin music, superb musicianship and hit songs, faithfully re-creating the music of Santana.
They bring a powerful and melodic drive to Santana’s Latin rock style, which they play with power, passion and perfection ensuring a fantastic, high energy, engaging and fun event. Oye Santana play all the hits including the Grammy award-winning Smooth plus Maria Maria, She’s Not There, Black Magic Woman, Samba Pa Ti, Oye Como Va, Jingo and Corazon Espinado.
The six-piece band lineup consists of a superb “Carlos Santana” who looks and sounds identical to the great man himself. Top-notch Spanish and English speaking vocalists compliment them. The music of Carlos Santana is a mixture of Samba, Smooth Latin ballads, Bossa Novas and Latin style rock and Oye Santana's blend of electric and Spanish guitar songs blend perfectly with the authentic percussion section and virtuoso keyboards.
The exuberance of the performance itself is what wins the hearts (and the dancing feet) of audiences from Salsa evenings to sold-out theatres; from intimate parties to thronging festivals; from the UK to events all over Europe.
• The best tribute band I've seen.

• Oye Santana were probably the finest tribute to Santana that I have heard and the
musicianship was outstanding. Look no further, Oye Santana are technically brilliant!!!!!

• Santana and his eponymous band have been blending Mexican passion with rock energy since
the 1960s: Oye Santana captures that heady blend with uncanny feeling. Yes, they faultlessly
reproduced the music; they are accomplished musicians in their own rights. But more than that,
they conjured up
the atmosphere, the sheer hedonistic abandon to rhythm that lifts Santana from music to
passionate maelstrom. This was no pale 'photo copy' of another band …they build a stunning
