Coming off the celebration of two epic milestones in 2019 - the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking album Supernatural and the 50th anniversary of his legendary performance at Woodstock - Carlos Santana now looks to 2020 and the celebration of the 50th anniversary of his masterpiece Abraxas. To date, Santana has won 10 Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammys. He won a record-tying nine Grammys for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”) as well as three Latin Grammys. He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009), and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time;” he has joined the Rolling Stones as one of only two bands to have an album reach the Top 10 in every decade since the 1960s. In 2018, he released his first MasterClass. In it he teaches the art, heart and soul of guitar, reaching deep into the spirituality and tonality of his playing to help students become more authentic and expressive artists. In January, Santana released the EP In Search of Mona Lisa (Concord Records), followed by this summer’s energy infused full-length album of new material Africa Speaks. NPR called it Santana’s “best record in decades” (NPR) and The New York Times said it “ranks with the fiercest albums in Santana’s 50-year career.” Santana is currently headlining a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
