Taken as a whole, his curriculum vitae is nothing less than a chronicle of some of the greatest moments in Rock history, including legendary live appearances at Woodstock (both '69 and '94) and Live Aid (1985), and ranging from his debut release, Santana which stayed on the Billboard charts for two years and sold more than four million copies, to his critically acclaimed 1999 release, Supernatural, which earned a record breaking nine Grammy Awards and sold over 25 million copies worldwide. In addition to Shaman, The Essential Santana (Columbia/Legacy), a two-disc retrospective of the artist's years at Columbia Records, will also be released on October 22.

As a musician, Carlos Santana was the first guitarist to skillfully blend rock with Latin music, blues, and Afro-Cuban rhythms to create a unique sound. Personally, his life is a story of success against the odds. He was born in a tiny Mexican village in 1947. He learned about music at an early age from his father, a mariachi violinist. In 1969, Carlos Santana would take the music world by storm, with his fiery performance at Woodstock.
