The Australian Santana Experience was formed in September 2006 by Sam Musca and Ezio Caffarelli and originally called Soul Sacrifice (The band has agreed that a more current name would reach a wider audience and Soul Sacrifice is no longer the name of the band).

Sam and Ezio love the music of Carlos Santana and know that there is a big fan base in Australia for this magnificent style of music. Our aim is to carry the legacy of this beautiful world music to the people of Australia and to make them sing, dance and celebrate their lives in the light of goodwill and, in the spirit of song and dance….and basically to have a great time.


Sam has been playing guitar for over 40 years. He has played in Bands for 33 years and is a well respected Perth Musician who has played in many bands such as Souled Out, Saxafunk, Groove Cats, Strictly Business and Ruby Tuesday. Sam is also in constant demand as a guitar teacher. Sam has played the music of Carlos Santana since he was a boy of 14 and he plays the guitar with all the finesse and emotion that is a standout of Carlos Santana’s playing


Ezio has been playing keyboards and piano for well over 40 years and is one of Perth’s leading musicians. He has played in too many bands to name. Ezio has supported national and international musicians and is an excellent music arranger. Ezio too is a keen follower and supporter of Santana’s music and ably supports Sam in his playing.


Frank has been in the music industry for many years. Frank has toured, recorded and released original recordings in Europe and the United States of America. Frank is more than just an accomplished singer; he is also a magnificent entertainer and a respected guitarist. Frank has an incredible vocal range and style that is not to be missed.


Jim has over 30 years of experience touring internationally and with many national recording ventures. He is accomplished in many styles as witnessed recently with bands “On The Level”, Resonance Project” and “Pink and White Bridge”.


George hails from the United Kingdom, where he played in “Viva Santana” the UK’s own Santana Tribute show. Since arriving down under in 2007, George has played in a variety of bands on the Perth music scene including cover groups and Latin ensembles.


Russell is one of Perth’s eminent percussionists. He too has a long history of playing in many bands both in WA and interstate. Russell adds the Afro-Cuban beats from his congas that are a hallmark of the Santana sound.
