PERFORMING "SAIDEIRA" FEATURING SAMUEL ROSA FROM HIS BRAND NEW ALBUM CORAZON!
Check Out What The Press Is Saying About Corazón!
"...the sound of Carlos Santana's guitar is unmistakable: angular melodies with a signature piercing tone, easy to distinguish no matter the genre, from rock to Latin to jazz."
"'Oye 2014' updates Santana's ...'Oye Como Va' for yet another generation, ...'Mal Bicho,' with Argentine vets Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, is seamless cumbia-psych-skapunk swarming with bee-sting riffs. Carlos Santana's signature tone meshes handsomely with Romeo Santos' breathy tenor ('Margarita')... It remains an unmistakable, undeniable sound."
"'Corazón' also finds vibrant international connections....A sultry vintage-flavored cha-cha, 'Una Noche en Nápoles' ... 'Mal Bicho,' a cumbia-rap-rumba-dancehall manifesto, is even more vehement with Mr. Santana's guitar wailing."
"... a spirited hopscotch from reggae, cumbia, rumba and salsa to jazz, rock, hip-hop and pop. ...Santana's expressive guitar is the most commanding voice here."
*** ½ Stars
"Santana puts a twist on the starry sorcery of Supernatural summoning Latin-music powers...hip-shaking highlight 'Mal Bicho' the guitar god mixes it up...reggae and R&B are also represented with Ziggy Marley and Miguel giving soul to Corazon."
"Guitar virtuoso Carlos Santana ten-time Grammy winner and three-time Latin Grammy winner is trying something new: an entire album of Spanish-language songs, ...'Mal Bicho,' meaning "scoundrel" or "rascal," is upbeat with ska and reggae influences-and showcases plenty of Santana's passionate guitar riffs."
"Santana embraces Latin roots with 'Corazon'"
"It marries Santana's stinging leads to vocals from artists like Colombian rocker Juanes, bachata heartthrob Romeo Santos and smoky Mexican chanteuse Lila Downs. The best moments include the melding of Downs and Spanish flamenco singer Niña Pastori or the jazz foray with Santana's old pal Wayne Shorter."
