Carlos Santana is a guitarist, composer, singer and leader of the band Santana who helped to shape the concept of "world music" with his experiments with blending many styles of music from a multitude of different cultures from around the globe. He was born Carlos Augusto Alves Santana on July 20, 1947, in Mexico. He is one of six children. From the age of 5 Santana learned the violin from his father, a professional mariachi violinist. He switched to guitar at the age of 8, when the family moved to Tijuana. During the late 50s he was playing gigs at clubs and bars with various bands up and down the Tijuana Strip.
Santana shot to fame after his legendary performance at Woodstock Music and Art Festival in 1969. His surprise appearance was featured in the film 'Woodstock' which increased Santana's awareness and popularity across the States. Also, his psychedelic second album titled 'Abraxas' in 1970 reached #1 on the album charts and went on to sell over four million copies worldwide. Three songs from that album are 'Black Magic Woman', 'Oye Como Va', and 'Samba Pa Ti' which each became huge international hits. Black Magic Woman has even been featured in games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero and countless films and television shows.
During the four decades of his career Santana has been a true multi-cultural artist. His instantly recognizable blend of Latin, salsa, blues, rock, and Cuban styles has been evolving over time with the inclusion of elements from jazz, fusion, and world beat. Santana's high-pitched and clean guitar sound has been coming out of his custom-made PRS guitars to please the ears of fans around the world to this day. His unique and instantly recognizable sound is legendary. Now's your chance to see him perform live in Atlantic City at the Borgata Events Center on June 13th and 14th, 2014.
