MIL SANTOS – singer, songwriter, globetrotter – from Cali Colombia to Japan and to Kreuzberg, Berlin.
His gripping voice expresses his Colombian nationality, and his words are piercing. He raises his voice from the old continent and sings of new worlds.
Mil Santos new Album „El día“ came out on the 1 of April 2016 and it is completely inspired by the music he grew up with, the salsa. On stage Mil Santos is always accompanied by professional musicians from different countries.
Since the sommer 2012 the new album “EN VIDA!” is available for purchase. This album is a co-creation with the great german singer NICATEA (www.nicatea.net). With the song „OYE!“ you can also listen to the appearance of George Pajón. guitarist of the BLACK EYED PEAS.
MIL SANTOS means a thousand saints, and they light his way through worlds and cultures. These stages stretch from Germany all the way back to Colombia. You can find him on lineup of famous festivals, underground clubs, or last year even in Bogotá in the Plaza Bolívar,
as 40,000 people sang his song “Llegó el día llegó” at full blast.
“Nothing can connect two worlds as strongly as the invisible, as music.” (Mil Santos)
In 2009 Mil Santos supported famous german bands on their entire tours, along with a soundsystem, representing the EP “CREO”.
Shortly after this he and his band were flown along with the whole band to Medellin, Colombia, in order to be involved in two concerts at “Zona Norte”:
the realization of a socially groundbreaking project for the history of Medellin, on the largest open air stage, being broadcast on live TV.
For the purposes of this stay the artists also gave music and lyrics workshops, which lead to day-long exchanges with young people from the surrounding Barrios.
These days were captured on film by the documentary film maker Diego Garcia, who is very well known in Colombia.
In 2010 MIL SANTOS once again went to Colombia.
MIL SANTOS song “Llegó el día llegó” was used in the presidential campaign of the Colombian green party. Because of the large amount of media coverage throughout all over Colombia, MIL SANTOS were received by a massive media presence some days later in Bogotá, Colombia. After many concerts and many more interviews (ZDF, CNN-USA,Billboard Magazine, Funkhaus Europa among others) in Bogotá, Cali etc, the climax took place on the Plaza Bolívar in the heart of Bogotá in front of 40,000 people.
Back in Germany MIL SANTOS and his live-band, musicians from all over the world, kept on playing familiar venues like Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, the stadium in Wiesbaden to mark a formula 1 fundraiser, the “Festival Mundial” (Holland), in which they were extremely excited (as with many other performances) to be on the line up in between Calle 13 and Sean Paul.
Along with Shakira and Juanes, MIL SANTOS is one ambassador of Colombia. A land that has already survived so much strife, yet nevertheless spreads so much vitality and courage throughout the world.
”Music is the purpose and means, a home in every place!” (Mil Santos)
