The Austin Latino Music Association (ALMA) has produced a variety of music programs over the years, all in hope of increasing awareness of and supporting Austin’s Latino Music scene. One of ALMA’s signature showcases is the annual Carlos Santana tribute showcase, Santana-rama. This year’s showcase will take place on Saturday, October 22, at Maria Maria.
Every year for Santana-rama, an all-star group of Austin musicians come together to perform the year’s tribute band. This year’s lineup includes Vitera, Ady Hernandez, Frank Gomez, Candi Sanders, Jesse Jiménez and Jayme Muñoz. Also performing their original music for the night’s showcase will be Austin’s Latin Roots band El Tule and Rick Lugo band. The performances of the night will feature video of vintage Santana performances.
