" SANTANA is the Frontman (Singer & Guitarist) from the psychedelic rock band Redlake Circus, whose their theatrical performances have been igniting stages worldwide, becoming rapidly a must seen live act." - Newcomer Szene, Germany


Hi Circus Family, friends, rocknrollas, freaks and all you interesting people, this is Santana. I’ve worked as a producer, guitarist, singer, composer & song writer for different projects.

I’ve done 2 Studio Albums with Redlake Circus, a Berlin based pyschedelic rock band and some diferrent Live Recordings with my other 2 projects Iah Moontra & Enso Akasha, recordings that have been useful for some medtitaion sessions.

I love to collaborate with different artists, bringing different elements to the songs from other countries, including instruments such as Santur, Bendir, Oud, Gimbri, Hang Drum, Darbuka, Djambe, Flutes, Kalimba, Drums, Keyboards, Bass, Guitars, etc...Blending different music styles; varying from the mix of groovy Hard Rock riffs, smooth Blues licks & mystic oriental atmospheres.

I believe that “Music Heals” and that “Together we will rise”. I’ve been honored to be requested to play in some music therapies, using these melodies for some healing sessions. It feels good to know that we can share our energy through music and bring some joy and peace to someone with it.

After a couple of sessions, lot of you guys have come to us asking for a record with all this new stuff. We really have no words to describe how grateful we are with all of you for your great love & support to our music through all these years,

NEW ALBUM

So after having some chats with all of these really talented artists, we decided to make this happen.

We are working now on 23 songs for this album & hopefully with your help and support it will be released as a double-CD in physical format by the end of March 2017

23 tracks that will blend some Oriental instruments with Shamanic Chants and some powerful Psychedelic Blues Rock licks.

In these times, it is pretty difficult to be able to survive as a working musician. Venues & promoters don't really want to pay a basic fee and instead they offer you pretty shitty deals.

It takes a lot of time & money for one person to manage an entire project. Our goal is to be able to make a double album in a good quality and professional recording studio and for it we really need your support to be able to accomplish this.

 

MUSIC

Here you can listen & download some tracks I've recorded so far with different artists here in Berlin, you can get them for free or for any amount that you would like to donate.

Click here: www.santanaberlin.bandcamp.com

All the songs we’ve made so far were made in a couple of hours with just a very limited time to rehearse, most of them are actually just jam sessions that we’ve recorded with a low budget recording equipment. Almost all of them will be included on the new album as higher quality recordings.
