Oh oh, guess what day it is. Guess what day it is. Huh… anybody? LOL
Hope you’e enjoying Santana week.
In the Sixties, Carlos Santana pioneered an innovative fusion of rock, fiery Afro-Latin polyrhythms, and contrasting cool, low-key vocals. In time, he was drawn to jazz-rock fusion and worked outside the band with John McLaughlin, Stanley Clarke, and others. The group continued to perform off and on into the Nineties. In 1999, Clive Davis signed Santana and paired them with a host of current hitmakers to orchestrate one of the most phenomenal comeback stories in rock history.
Carlos Santana is a fourth-generation musician and the son of a violinist father who played mariachi music. His father tried for many years to teach him violin, but at age eight, Santana discovered the guitar and started listening to the electric blues of B.B. King and John Lee Hooker. In 1955 the family moved from the small village of Autl án de Navarro to Tijuana, where Santana began playing guitar in nightclubs. During his teens, the family moved to San Francisco. It was there, working as a dishwasher, that he formed his own band.
