Santana: Gregg Rolie (vocals, piano, organ), Carlos Santana and Neal Schon (electric guitar), Wendy Haas (piano), Tom Rutley (bass), José “Chepito” Areas (bongos, percussion), James Mingo Lewis (congas and percussion) and Michael Shrieve and Armando Peraza (percussion). From the album Caravanserai (1972).

In 1993 Sacred Fired: Live in South America, dedicated to the Mexican-American farm worker civil rights activist César Chávez, went on sale featuring several live performances in Mexico City. In 1994 Carlos launched Santana Brothers, a collaboration with his brother Jorge and nephew Carlos Hernandez, both playing guitar. In 1996 he was bestowed Billboard’s Century Award. For the next few years Carlos Santana toured, but didn’t record any album, and in 1998 Santana’s formation that recorded the first two albums was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame


In 1999 Clive Davis, founder of the Arista label, convinced Carlos to publish with his company an album with young musicians and guest stars. The result was Supernatural, which won nine Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards, was certified 15 times platinum, and the singles “Smooth” and “Maria Maria” reached the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2002 Santana issued Shaman with a similar concept to the previous work inviting important musicians, reaching the first position in the Billboard 200 and being certified twice platinum. The single “The Game of Love” won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals and got the fifth place on the Billboard Hot 100, and “Why Do not You and I” the eighth.

In 2005 the renowned jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock invited Carlos to participate in his album Possibilities and Santana published All That I Am again with the contribution of other great artists, reaching the second position in the Billboard 200. During the following years Carlos dedicated himself to collaborate with other musicians, such as Italian singer and composer Eros Ramazzotti, Canadian singer and guitarist Chad Kroeger, Cuban singer, actress and composer Gloria Estefan, and Colombian singer and composer Shakira.
