BOOTLEG GOLD FEATURES CARLOS SANTANA
- Category: Bootleg Gold
In anticipation of the Sinulog Mardi Gras honouring Cebu’s Santo Niño, this week Bootleg Gold brings a special feature dedicated to the upcoming event.
With the original blend of Latin-infused rock, jazz, blues and African rhythms, Y101 Always First will definitely rock the islands with the drumbeats and guitar riffs pioneered by Carlos Santana!
Carlos Augusto Alves Santana was born in Austin de Navarro, Mexico on July 20, 1947. At a very young age, he learnt to play the guitar, performing in Tijuana strip clubs inspired by some of his favourite idols like B.B. King. His passion for music led him to release a series of successful albums after he moved to San Francisco where he formed the Santana Blues Band in the 60s.
Through the years, Santana became an icon of his own and although his popularity slightly declined in the 80s, his phenomenal comeback in 1997 was unprecedented when he collaborated with a roster of musicians to later release unparalleled albums like Supernatural in 1999 and Shaman in 2002, attaining for himself a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009 and becoming a Kennedy Center Honors recipient in 2013.
Don’t miss out on Bootleg Gold this evening when Martha T and Marko host an extraordinary repertoire of Santana’s hits from 6 PM – 8 PM on Cebu’s Y101!
