Freight and Salvage

Tony Lindsay

This summer marks the 20th anniversary of Supernatural- Santana’s wildly successful, Grammy-winning 1999 album, which has become one of the best-selling albums of all-time.  One of the singers on that album was Tony Lindsay, Santana’s lead vocalist from the early ’90s to 2015. In this edition of Bay Area Beats, Tony shares what it means to be a part of the Santana legacy and why he doesn’t plan on retiring any time soon.

Since the Arab Spring, the world has been watching armed conflict escalate in Syria. This Friday, the 17th of October, the Bay Area has a chance to consider the war-torn country in a different way -- by how it sounds.  Classical Syrian music gets an American interpretation at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley. The Jazz and Syria Quintet will perform and participate in a discussion hosted by award-winning journalist Reese Erlich.
