The first time I fell in LOVE with Carlos Santana was when I heard him play ….. Maria Maria


Then, when I learned he was born on my birthday and in the same year – July 20, 1947 – I was hooked.

I felt we were connected in some way. Okay, so he was born in Autlan de Novarra, Mexico and I in Brooklyn, New York. But, his sound is so powerful and you feel transported to unimagined heights.

His newest video is a collaboration with Jaunes called ‘La Flaca’.

Influenced by his Latin roots, Carlos Santana is an award winning Hall of Fame guitarist and rock bandleader. H’s been active in the blues and pop song culture for over 40 years.
He first recorded with his band Santana in 1969, combining electrified blues guitar and Afro-Cuban rhythms into a groovy, danceable blend. Santana was a big part of the San Francisco music scene, and their hit 1970 album Abraxas has been a reliable seller for three decades. It features some of Santana’s best known songs, including “Black Magic Woman” and “Oye Como Va.” The personnel in the band Santana has changed many times over the years, and Carlos has worked with several other popular artists, including Buddy Miles, Herbie Hancock, Willie Nelson and Dave Matthews. In 1999 Santana again made a major splash on the charts with the album Supernatural, which featured the hit single “Smooth.” Santana took home eight Grammy Awards for the album, including record of the year, album of the year, best rock album, and five other awards. It tied Santana with Michael Jackson (and his 1984 album Thriller) for the most Grammy Awards won in one night.
Maria Maria is a song by Santana featuring The Product G&B. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on April 8, 2000, and stayed there for ten weeks. At the 2000 Grammy Awards, the song won the Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Despite other lead singers from the album receiving awards, The Product G&B were, for some reason, not honored with a Grammy. Marc Anthony also sang on a version of the song. info wikipedia

La Flaca Lyrics

En la vida conoci mujer igual a la flaca
Coral negro de La Habana
tremendisima mulata
Cien libras de piel y hueso
40 kilos de salsa
y en la cara los soles
que sin palabras hablan.
que sin palabras hablan.
La flaca duerme de dia
dice que asi el hambre engana
cuando cae la noche
baja a bailar a la tasca
Y bailar y bailar
y tomar y tomar
una cerveza tras otra
pero ella nunca engorda,
pero ella nunca engorda.
Por un beso de la flaca
daria lo que fuera
por un beso de ella
aunque solo uno fuera.
Por un beso de la flaca
daria lo que fuera
por un beso de ella
aunque solo uno fuera.
Aunque solo uno fuera.
Coge mis sabanas blancas
como dice la cancion
recordando las caricias
que me brindo el primer dia y
Enloquezco de ganas de dormir a su ladito
porque Dios que esta flaca a
mi me tiene loquito.
A mi me tiene loquito.
Por un beso de la flaca
yo daria lo que fuera
por un beso de ella
aunque solo uno fuera.
Por un beso de la flaca
yo daria lo que fuera
por un beso de ella
aunque solo uno fuera.
Aunque solo uno fuera.
Aunque solo uno fuera.
Aunque solo uno fuera.
Aunque solo uno fuera.
Aunque solo uno fuera.
Aunque solo uno fuera.
Aunque solo uno fuera.
Aunque solo uno fuera.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.

    • Hi Gayle, Glad you enjoy him too. I hadn’t heard any songs until the one I posted here. It seems like many musicians are collaberating with others. It’s nice to see you here. I see your writing your wonderful poetry again. Thanks for dropping by and leaving your lovely message. It’s always nice to see you and your comments. 😎

      • I’m surprised that you hadn’t heard any Santana songs, Izzy. I’ve been loving their music since I was a teenager. And, no, not really writing much anymore. I just recently posted something because the prompt really inspired me. But my energies seem to be otherwise directed these days. Always good to connect with you though! Love and hugs…

        • hahaha … I guess I wrote my comment incorrectly. What I meant was that Santana hadn’t been recording any new material. At least, as far as I know. Then, I heard on the radio the one I posted here with his collaberation with Juanes. I used to enjoy hearing Maria – Maria when that one came out. My friends name was Maria. We’d laugh and say he wrote and sang the song for her.
          I have my stagnant writing moments too. Then, there are times I have too much to write about and not enough time to do it. But, it is supposed to be fun … isn’t it? LOL 😃 ❤ hugs Gayle ❤

  8. Brill’ band indeed,,Izzy did you know on one of Santanas tours they had Earth Wind and Fire as a support but they got them kick off because they were taking too many encore’s and too popular.. a few years later they became a big name band.. as you probably know their music as well…

    • Interesting, Gerry … I didn’t know that. I’m not surprised as most artists’; especially, those in the music or acting industry, have huge egos. I believe he was just staring then and may have been – like many other artists – on something not-quite-legal – and had an edge to another band taking the limelight. Earth, Wind and Fire are great. I am a fan of theirs too. Music is so varied and sunjective that there has to be many in order to reach some audience. Glad you enjoyed the post … and … thanks for the comment full of info. 😎
