Legendary singer Daniel Santos may be retired, but that won’t stop him from setting out on one more adventure- a concert tour of South America where he was once known as El Jefe (The Chief), and where he now hopes to find admiration, applause, and proof that he is still relevant.
Bolero and Guaracha singing idol Daniel Santos was one of Tropical Music’s most colorful and enigmatic figures. With his bohemian lifestyle, extraordinary talent and personality, he tore through Latin America in the 50s. He did everything in a big way, and his love-affairs, recordings, musical compositions, and jail nights for bar-brawls all numbered in the hundreds. The Last Tour finds him in his later years, retired from show-business and living in Ocala, Florida, where he operates a small bodega-type store, writing a memoir. The remembrance of past glories pushes him to embark on one last hurrah: a concert tour where he hopes to demonstrate his relevance beyond a mere nostalgia act.
