Carlos Santana, legendary guitarist is releasing the 23rd album of his career. Interestingly enough it will mark the first ever “Latin” album he has ever recorded. On May 6th, 2014, “Corazon” will be launched. A large number of artists who collaborated on this project were recorded at a concert in Guadalajara, Mexico, in December 2013.where the content of this album is from.
The concert, called “CoraZON, Live from Mexico: Live It to Believe It” will be broadcast on HBO Latino and HBO Latin America and will also be available on DVD. The performers include ChocQuibTown, Lila Downs, Gloria Estefan, Fabulosos Cadillacs, Juanes, Ziggy Marley, Miguel, Niña Pastori, Diego Torres, Samuel Rosa of Skank, Cindy Blackman Santana, Romeo Santos, Soledad, Wayne Shorter, among others.
Carlos credits his brother-in-law with bringing up the idea two years ago. “Everything that is inspiration comes from something sacred,” recalls Santana. “My brother-in-law, who is now also my manager asked me two years ago to do an album like Supernatural, but in Spanish, with Latino people. OK, I replied. I’ll get to the universe: God created a universe where he can clearly see the intensity of your intentions, and then he rewards you. That is what it is.”
There will also be a nine city tour to follow for this album. At 66, the ten time Grammy winner and three time Latin Grammy winner is in position to make his biggest splash since his 2000 album, Supernatural landed him nine Grammys.
