About Carlos Santana:
2019 marked the 20th anniversary of Carlos Santana’s groundbreaking album Supernatural and the 50th anniversary of his legendary performance at Woodstock. To date, Santana has won 10 GRAMMY awards and three Latin GRAMMYs. He won a record-tying nine GRAMMY awards for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin GRAMMYs. He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009), and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as No. 15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” In 2018, he released his first MasterClass. In it he teaches the art, heart and soul of guitar, reaching deep into the spirituality and tonality of his playing to help students become more authentic and expressive artists. In early 2019, Santana released the EP In Search of Mona Lisa (Concord Records) which was followed by the critically-acclaimed Africa Speaks. The energy infused full-length album of new material was released June 7 (Concord Records) and found Santana teaming up with legendary producer Rick Rubin and Spanish singer Buika for one of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist’s most ambitious projects to date. Santana is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
