What Is Carlos Santana Best Known For? (RESOLVED!)

Santana, who had left Columbia for Polydor in 1991, signed with the company. He released Milagro (1992), and Sacred Fire Live in South America (1993). Santana, despite his disassociation with Chinmoy, remained deeply spiritual during live performances. Santana played in the Woodstock memorial concert, 25 years later than his group’s historic performance. Under his own label, Guts and Grace, he released a collaborative album, Brothers (1994), with his brother Jorge Santana and nephew Carlos Hernandez, that was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental 😎 Later in the decade, Santana was among the 1998 group of artists inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 👍 [1]
Among many other honors, Carlos Santana received Billboard Latin Music Awards’ 2009 Lifetime Achievement honourr, and, he was bestowed Billboard’s Century Award in 1996. He was awarded the Kennedy Center Honors Award on December 8, 2013. Rolling Stone has also named him #15 on the magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” noting that “Santana’s crystalline tone and clean arcing sustain make him the rare instrumentalist who can be identified in just one note.” And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on.

Great article by ultimateclassicrock.com Santana, musically speaking, were both part and distant from San Francisco’s music scene that emerged in 1967. Their hippie ideallism is down. Santana’s flowing, long jams are a key part of that era. Their classic songs were infused with Latin rhythms, fueled by frenetic beats. The group’s new album, which featured experimental records, mysterious solo albums by Carlos Santana (the leader) and no commercial activity, rose to number one in the charts in 1999. It was the best music return in history. This list contains the Top 10 Santana Songs. It includes some of both. [3]

Rosalee Gentle at rollingstone.comHow we talk about angels and suchlike. There are few conversations with him that don’t lead to a discussion of angels, or of the spiritual radio through which music comes. Santana is increasingly involved with angels ever since 1988, when he bought a book about the topic at Milwaukee’s airport. “It’s an enormous peace, the few times I had have felt the presence in the room,” he says. “I had feel lit up. I’m not Carlos anymore, I’m not bound to DNA anymore. It’s beyond sex, it’s beyond anything that this world could give you a buzz. It makes me feel like Jesus embraced me and I’m bathed in light.” (we truly appreciate Kizzy Sumner from Lahore, Pakistan for pointing this out to us). [4]
