Carlos Santana has been reinventing and reshaping the landscape of musical culture for close to four decades. A visionary artist with no regards for genre boundaries, Carlos’ fluid sound long ago laid claim to the concept of “world music” before the term ever surfaced on pop culture radar. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Santana has sold more than 90 million records, and performed to over 100 million people globally. He has won ten GRAMMY(r) Awards, including a record tying nine for a single project for his 36th album, the blockbuster 1999 disc Supernatural. Well into his fourth decade of recording and performing, Carlos Santana is at the pinnacle of his career, more vital and relevant than ever. He magnificently embodies both “old school” virtuosity and “new school” cool, continually reaching successive new generations of fans with his passionate music. His signature sound-fusing rock, jazz, blues, soul, Latin idioms, multi-cultural genres and more-is as unique as it is instantly identifiable. With his lifetime of music and achievement, Santana has become a cultural event– transcending genre, crossing cultures–creating the music that has become the soundtrack for the world.
Less publicized, but equally as profound as his artistic legacy, is Santana’s long history of social activism and contributions of time and funds to humanitarian causes. As a culmination of his decades of support for countless charities and non-profit agencies the world over, he and Deborah Santana founded the Milagro Foundation in 1998. With over $2.8million in grants to date, Milagro supports organizations promoting the welfare of underserved children in the areas of health, education, and the arts.
Proceeds from this auction lot will go to benefit The Milagro Foundation. For more information, or to bid on this unique experience, go to CharityFolks.com or click on:
