American latin-rock group, formed in the late 1960s, led by guitarist [a=Carlos Santana].

They first came to wide public attention after their performance at the Woodstock Festival in 1969. Their debut promo 45 single for "Jingo" properly credits writer as "Babatunde Olatunji" and later was mistaken for "Aaron Copland". This initial exposure made their first, eponymous album a hit at the time, followed in the next two years by “Abraxas” and “Santana III”.

Over the next few years, lineup changes were common. Although retaining a basis of latin rock, Carlos Santana’s increasing involvement with guru Sri Chinmoy took the band further into more esoteric music, which continued for many years, although never quite losing the initial latin influence.

In 1998, the group was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, with Carlos Santana, Jose Chepito Areas, David Brown, Mike Carabello, Gregg Rolie and Michael Shrieve being honored.

Santana has achieved a total of eight Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards which were all awarded in 2000. Carlos also won two Grammy Awards as a solo artist in 1989 and 2003.

With the 2010 release of Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time¬, Santana joined the Rolling Stones as one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album in each decade from the 1960s on. Among other honors, Carlos Santana is #20 on Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”
