Santana: No One to Depend On

Santana’s performance of Soul Sacrifice at Woodstock put the band — and, of course, Carlos — on the map. Here is Oye Como Va, a song written and originally performed by Tito Puente. Two other early piece are Samba Pa Ti and Hope You’re Feeling Better. Carlos joins Eric Clapton in a performance of Jingo at the Crossroads guitar festival in 2004.

Xtreme Musician provides a short bio of Santana, who was born in Mexico. More helpful than the bio is the list of musicians he has influenced. NNDB provides a deeper look at his work.

Santana’s site has the schedule for his next tour, which starts on July 7. Here is the band’s Facebook page.
