With tickets secured month ago, we went to Santana concert at Kurucesme on a boat that took us right to the concert venue. We positioned ourselves right in front of the stage and began waiting. The famous guitar guru drew our attention to the beautiful full moon rising behind us over Bosphorus and the night began. It was a non-stop music feast that continued for almost two hours. The sound of the exotic instruments, the virtuoso of Carlos and the flawless rendering of his songs by his two virtually nameless but equally powerful singers turned what would otherwise be an extremely boring night into a festival. 

 

Carlos Santana had given a concert in Turkey some 20 years ago. I could not help thinking whether there will be another 20 years for either of us.

 

During his brief address to the audience he said he still considered himself a hippy and that he paid no attention to money. Somehow, many of the people who keep saying that are multimillionaires. He also said, he believed in the power of love and not in the love of power.  He can´t be supporting Bush, need I say more?

Vineyards! I was standing right behind you. I was the one jumping and screaming ´Santana te quiero mucho!´ Did you see me?!?!?! It was a great concert and in a great venue. It was a real treat...And I am certain he has never supported a Republican!

He´s not coming to the UK this year Confused but I was more referring to the setting rather than him coming to the UK!  If he does it would be in the boring O2 arena or Wembley Arena, nothing so fantastic as Istanbul Neutral
