BIC is proud to announce that ten-time GRAMMY® winner Carlos Santana is bringing his celebrated Divination Tour to Bahrain International Circuit on Friday, 6 April 2018.
Santana is a superstar of world music and his ground-breaking Afro-Latin-blues-rock fusion transcends musical genres and generational, cultural and geographical boundaries. As a result, he has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY® Awards. He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the year for “Smooth”).
This will be Carlos Santana’s first ever performance in Bahrain, where fans will be able to enjoy many of his global hits from his incredible career, which has included collaborations with such artists as Eric Clapton, Lauryn Hill, Cee Lo Green and Wyclef Jean, many of which appeared on his 35th album, Supernatural which sold over 10 million copies worldwide producing perhaps his most famous No. 1 hit single, "Smooth”.
Other accolades received by the star, notable for his unique sounding electric guitar riffs, include a Billboard Century Award, an entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and he has been also cited by Rolling Stone as number 15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” In 2014, he became one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades.
