CARLOS SANTANA – Plaza de Toros, Alicante, August 7th

Carlos Santana, known as Santana, was born on July 20th 1947. He is a Mexican-American rock musician and songwriter, who was raised in Autlán de Navarra in Mexico and moved to San Francisco with his family while he was still young. He is famous for his work with his Latin-rock fusion band Santana.
He learned to play the guitar at the age of eight. Fast forward to a time when he worked as a dishwasher and did some busking, Santana caught the eye of promoter Bill Graham at an open night jam session in the city. Around this time he formed the Santana Blues Band with some fellow buskers and musicians, and they gained a strong local following due to their unique blend of various styles, including rock, jazz, blues and salsa.
Following a triumphant Woodstock show, the newly renamed Santana were signed by CBS records and the group released their first album, Santana, which was a hit, reaching number four in the charts. This led to a whirlwind of success and line up changes for the band as they released an astounding 11 further albums in the next decade.
Santana has now released over 20 studio albums and has won numerous Grammys. Carlos Santana is considered by many critics as one of the greatest guitarists in the modern era. Popular music magazine Rolling Stone named him as the 20th greatest guitarist of all time. Santana was inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame in 1998.
Now, as part of his Divination Tour 2018, Santana is coming to Alicante.
