Santana are an American Latin rock band formed in San Francisco, California in 1967 by Mexican guitarist Carlos Santana. The band first came to widespread public attention with their performance of “Soul Sacrifice” at Woodstock in 1969. This performance helped propel their first self titled album into a hit, followed in the next two years by the success of the albums Abraxas and Santana III. In the years that followed the lineup changed quite often. Carlos Santana’s involvement with guru Sri Chinmoy took the band into more esoteric music, though never quite losing its initial Latin influence. In 1998, the group were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, with Carlos Santana, Jose Chepito Areas, David Brown, Gregg Rolie, Mike Carabello and Michael Shrieve being honored. The band has earned eight Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards, the latter all in 2000. Carlos also won Grammy Awards as a solo artist in 1989 and 2003. Santana have sold more than 90 million records worldwide, making them one of the world’s best selling groups of all time. In 2013, Santana announced a reunion of the classic line up for a new record, Santana IV, which was released in April 2016.
