“It is a little ironic that the most warm hearted music project in Germany should come from Berlin; of all places. On the other hand, MIL SANTOS music is the ideal combatant for the cold Berlin Winter, namely an acoustic fusion of English, German and Spanish, a little Buena Vista Social Club mixed with a touch of Latin romantic, spoken word and interspersed with huge beats.”
Initiative Musik Deutschland
MIL SANTOS – singer, songwriter, globetrotter – from 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 means a thousand saints, and they light his way through worlds and cultures, just as the Microphone and guitar accompany him on stage.
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.
Mil Santos last 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. It was nominated to the "Best critics Album Prize" in Germany.
On stage Mil Santos is always accompanied by professional musicians from different countries.
“Nothing can connect two worlds as strongly as the invisible, as music.”
