Santana is an American rock band that was formed in 1966 in San Francisco. The current lineup of the group consists of Carlos Santana (lead guitar, vocals, and percussion), Benny Rietveld (bass), Karl Perazzo (percussion), Andy Vargas (vocals), Tommy Anthony (rhythm guitar), David K. Mathews (keyboards), Paoli Mejias (percussion), Cindy Blackman Santana (drums), and Ray Greene (vocals). Carlos Santana is the founder of Santana. The band secured its first record deal with Columbia Records in 1969. Santana went through several lineup changes throughout their career.
Santana recorded its self-titled debut album in Pacific Recording Studios. The album was officially released on August 30, 1969. The group released its second studio album entitled Abraxas on September 23, 1970. The band has been influenced greatly by Joe Zawinul, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis. They were the ones who explored jazz fusion at the time. On October 11, 1972, Santana came up with its fourth studio album, Caravanserai. The album saw some lineup changes in the band, but the album reached number 8 on the pop charts.
Eventually, Santana released its first gold-certified album after four consecutive albums. It was named, Welcome, and released in 1973. Welcome peaked at number 25 on the Billboard 200. The band kept experimenting with its musical style before they got their desired success.
Santana has released countless other hit albums so far, including Africa Speaks (2019), Santana IV (2016), Corazon (2014), Shape Shifter (2012), Guitar Heaven (2010), All That I Am (2005), Shaman (2002), Supernatural (1999), Milagro (1992), and Spirits Dancing in the Flesh (1990).
