SOULMATE performs and just like that walks in `SANTANA’!!

Carlos Santana is currently on tour in India. The guitar God just had two `godly’ concerts in Bangalore and New Delhi recently .His Concert in Delhi was very special for two things…

One, the opening act was SOULMATE, arguably one of India’s best bands with Rudy Wallang and Tipriti making the crowds go mad! And Secondly….. CARLOS SANTANA walks in and joins Rudy Wallang and Tipriti on stage in the middle of their performance!!

We can surely imagine what an overwhelming and a beautiful moment it must have been for Rudy and Tipriti. As Rudy wallang, the driving force of Soulmate says “We were in the middle of a song called Lie, which is a slow blues song,”,. “I glanced to my right and saw him (Santana) in his ‘guitar/amp room’ by the side of the stage, with his guitar tech, and he had a guitar strapped on.” Then he gesticulated to me, as if to say ‘can I join you?’ I was stunned for a second or two then I waved him in! Carlos walked in. Tips was still engrossed in the song, eyes closed and singing. I went: ‘TIPS! TIPS! CARLOS IS HERE!’ with tears in my eyes!”

This spectacular moment, which any artist/musician would cherish all life long, reminds us of the famous line from Forrest Gump – `life is a box of chocolates, you never know what you gonna get’
