Mexican guitarist Carlos Santana – rock, salsa and jazz fusion pioneer – last night gave a concert to a packed audience at MFCC in Ta’Qali, previously scheduled for the Granaries in Floriana.

Forecast near-gale winds caused a last-minute change of concert venue.

Santana gave an excellent performance, which was very well received by the packed crowd.

The only sore note in the concert was when a section of the crowd started booing when TV personality Lou Bondi' was shown on the big screen. Santana, who had been speaking at the time, looked shocked, thinking the booing was against him.
