Carlos Santana

Biography

At the beginning of a new century and the dawn of a new millennium, Carlos Santana is at the pinnacle of a remarkable recording and performing career. Carlos' music has spanned five decades, outlasted countless musical trends, sold more than fifty million albums, played live to upwards of thirty million fans, and garnered countless awards and honors, including a 1998 induction into the Rock 'n Roll Hall Of Fame. For over thirty years, Santana has been tirelessly creating his own unique fusion of passionate, guitar-powered music, creatively blending potent rock 'n roll with blues-driven elements, sensuous Afro-Cuban rhythms, and infusions of numerous other global music idioms. Long before 'World Music' was coined as a phrase, Santana was making it and popularizing it-perhaps even defining it...and ever since Carlos and his band exploded onto the stage with an electrifying performance at the original 1969 Woodstock Festival, the world has indeed been listening.

I went to the Santana concert last night at Coor Amphitheater in San Diego. Very dissapinted that Sanatana did not play any of the music that made him famous, he did not play Black Magic Woman, Evil Ways, Oyo como va etc... Many people were very dissapointed. I looked forward to this concert for a long time and bought the best box tickets and what a dissapointment. It's as if he is now catering to the younger crowd and forgotten the people who helped make him who he is. I will never go to another Santana concert and will make sure everyone I know hears about the ripoff his concert was. Just three more songs (BACK IN THE DAY ONES)would have turned the night around for the thousands who went to see him. From,Ex Loyal Fan

can i point out to ftvdragon that u never made him who he is. he got where he is today through playing the guitar to an exceptional level. i saw him in london a few days ago and he was amazing. and while i prefer the older music that he has done compared to some of the newer stuff i think of it as one of the best concerts i have ever been to because of the way he played and also the atmosphere that he created. and if u do truely believe that you made him what he is today then it is the "kids" that are going to take him places in the future. and to not go to another concert because he didnt play what you wanted, to me, sounds very immature. and at what time are you refering to as in the good ones?from,a music fan
