Titirangi Festival Of Music 2015 were lucky enough to have Santiago Soul Stars perform... they opened for Nathan Haines and thrilled the audience with a group comprised of real heavyweights from the NZ music industry, playing a blazing set of Latin music covering Afro Cuban, Samba, Funk and Jazz... It was our pleasure to work with them and we look forward to a return visit.

What can I say. What an amazing line up – you guys rocked it. We we’re just so lucky to have 2 of the best line up’s in Auckland on the night. It was just so awesome.
