Carlos Santana, who first became famous in the late 1960s with his band Santana, pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. His first Top 10 hit ‘Evil Ways’ stayed on the Billboard chart for two years and was soon followed by two more classics and Billboard number one albums ‘Abraxas’ (“Oye Como Va”, “Black Magic Woman”) and Santana III (“No One to Depend On”, “Everybody’s Everything”). To date, Santana has won 10 Grammy Awards including a record tying nine for a single project with 1999’s blockbuster Supernatural (“Smooth”, “Maria, Maria”, “Wishing It Was”) which featured many tracks co-written by guest stars such as Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20, Eric Clapton, Lauryn Hill and others.

Among many honors, Carlos Santana received Billboard Latin Music Awards 2009 Lifetime Achievement honor as well as Billboards Century Award in 1996. Having sold over 100 million records to date Santana has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is listed in the top 20 greatest guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine, Currently Santana is headlining at a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas and on December 8th, Carlos Santana will be the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors Award.

 

From Santana’s earliest days as a ground breaking Afro-Latin blues rock outfit to the mega chart topping collaboration of ‘Supernatural’. The sound of Carlos Santana is one of the world’s best know musical signatures. Don’t miss the chance to see him perform live for the first time in South Africa.
