Santana

ts[1] - Copy (2)Carlos Santana

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.
