The first time I heard Carlos Santana on the radio he was playing ….. Maria Maria
Influenced by his Latin roots, Carlos Santana is an award winning Hall of Fame guitarist and rock bandleader. He’s been active in the blues and pop song culture for over 40 years.
Santana was born in Autlan de Novarra, Mexico on my birthday July 20, 1947.
His sound is powerfully unique. It transports the listener to intoxicatedcating heights.
Carlos Santana first recorded with his band Santana in 1969, combining electrified blues guitar and Afro-Cuban rhythms into a groovy, danceable blend.
Samba Pa Ti is a perfect example of his blues sound.
In 2014, he collaborated with Jaunes on a song called ‘La Flaca’.
Juan Esteban Aristizábal Vásquez was born August 9, 1972. He’s better known as Juanes. It’s a contraction of his first and second name. He’s a Colombian musician who was a member of the Acoustic Rock band Ekhymosis and is, now, a solo artist. info©wikipedia
La Flaca Lyrics
En la vida conoci mujer igual a la flaca
Coral negro de La Habana
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.

Santana is a music legend. Interesting how he has stayed fresh my working with younger singers. The second song was my fav – but the last one is fun!

One of my fav’s Carlos Santana, and his song “Maria Maria”, brings back fond memories for me……. Maria was a mutual friend of me and Carole, she introduced us to each other on a blind date “44 years ago”…… xx
