Santana to Close Dubai Jazz Festival 2014
The 2014 Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival is certainly going to be an eclectic affair. The latest non-jazz musician added to the bill is none other than the king of Latin American music, Carlos Santana.
The internationally known Mexican guitarist will close the festival on 21 February 2014 and is said to be excited to return to play for the people of Dubai. He's been quoted as saying: "The people in Dubai have a very high standard of excellence. The Santana Band brings a sincere energy that is very contagious. That energy and the high standard we bring compliments the audience in Dubai perfectly. We are really looking forward to going back. We love playing there!"
Santana last played in Dubai in 2010, and at the Dubai Jazz Fest joins fellow non-jazz musicians Olly Murs, The Wanted and Stone Temple Pilots.
