Fronted by Mexican-born Javier Vazquez on guitar and vocals, Abraxas has been acclaimed as the most authentic, powerful, and accurate tributes to the music of Santana. Javier has been named “The Canadian Carlos Santana” by the Toronto press.
This show spans Santana’s musical career; from the early albums (Santana, Abraxas, and Santana III), covering all the hits from the Woodstock era (Soul Sacrifice, Jin-go-lo-ba, Evil Ways, Samba Pa Ti, Black Magic Woman), to the more recent collaborations from the 1990’s (Europa, Smooth, and Maria Maria).
The 8-person backing band is stacked with virtuosic performers who all get their moment in the spotlight, including a 3-man percussion section of Drum Kit, Congas, and Timbale and 3-woman horn section of Saxophone, Trumpet, and Trombone.
Abraxas delivers a spectacular performance; honouring the greatness of Carlos Santana and getting everyone onto the dance floor with its driven Latin grooves!
