Following a string of concert cancellations by foreign musicians in the wake of Israel's war with Hizbullah, platinum-selling guitarist Carlos Santana has become the first high-profile performer to announce a new show in the Jewish state. Yediot Aharonot reported over the weekend that the 10-time Grammy winner is scheduled to perform in Jerusalem next spring as part of Bridges of Music, an international project created to advance peace and understanding in conflict zones around the world. Previous Bridges of Music concerts have taken place in Indonesia, Cuba and Ireland. Santana will be one of some 45 musicians scheduled to perform in the week-long event, with other performers to include Israelis, Americans and artists from the Muslim world. The Jerusalem Fund and the Foreign Ministry will sponsor the event, Yediot Aharonot reported. Born in Mexico in 1947, Santana has sold 90 million records worldwide. The "Smooth" singer has done promotional work for a number of other non-profit organizations during his long career, including Greenpeace, Amnesty International, Doctors Without Borders and the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Museum of Tolerance.
