One of the elder statesmen of rock guitar will be dropping by Singapore next year for a concert.
Guitar maestro Carlos Santana will be performing here on 4 March 2013 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium as part of ‘”The Sentient Tour”.
The 10-time Grammy Award winning guitarist to fame in the late 1960s and carved a niche for himself by playing bluesy guitar riffs set against Latin and jazz fusion. 'Black Magic Woman' was the song that won him recognition.
He is also known for chart-topping collaborations with pop and rock vocalists. He collaborated with Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20 for ‘Smooth’, ‘Put your lights on’ with Everlast, and ‘Maria Maria’ with The Product G&B.
In his decades-long career, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and he was honoured with the Billboard Latin Music Awards 2009 Lifetime Award and the Billboard's Century Award and has been named among the '100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time'.
‘Shape Shifter’, the new album from Carlos Santana and the Santana Band, debuted at No. 16 in the Top 20 on the Billboard 200 top-selling albums chart, and at No. 2 on the indie chart.
It is the guitar legend’s 13th Top 20 album debut, and the group’s 30th top 200 charting release overall. It follows up 2010’s ‘Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time’, which made Santana the only act in Billboard history, other than the Rolling Stones, to score at least one Top Ten album in each decade from the 1960s through the present.
