Latin rockers Santana release a video montage of behind-the-scenes studio footage for their latest single 'La Flaca' featuring Juanes. The song features on their new album 'Corazon'; their first entirely latin record.
The video shows clips of Carlos Santana and his band recording the new track in a Las Vegas studio alongside Juanes as well as footage from recording various other parts of the album including collaborations with ChocQuibtown, Ziggy Marley, Lila Downs, Nina Pastori, Soledad, Samuel Rosa of Skank, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and Diego Torres, with the video also revealing that there were many more special guests appearances on the album.
Carlos Santana performed a special concert at the end of 2013 at Arena VFG in Guadalajara, Mexico where he played many of his new songs alongside a lot of the artists he worked with on the album. It was a bid to reconnect with his latin roots with the album being a celebration of his birthplace. The concert, entitled 'Corazon, Live From Mexico: Live It To Believe It', will be released on DVD later this year. 'Corazon' was produced by Lester Mendez and released through Sony Latin Iberia and RCA Records and Santana will be supporting it on their US Spring tour.
