For 40 years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide.

They won a record-tying nine Grammys – as well as three Latin Grammys – for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for Smooth).

Santana has also won one other Grammy Award, and founder Carlos Santana won a Grammy Award as a solo artist in 1988.

They also received the Billboard Century Award (1996) and were ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998).

Carlos Santana received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009) and was the recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors Award (2013).

Among many other honours, he has been cited by Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”

And, with the 2014 release of Corazón, Santana surpassed the Rolling Stones and is one of only two music acts in Billboard history to score at least one Top Ten album for six consecutive decades from the 1960s on.

In the fall of 2014, Carlos Santana released his memoir The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light.

In 2017, Carlos Santana and Cindy Blackman Santana joined forces with The Isley Brothers (Ronald and Ernie) to release Power of Peace, an album celebrating the timeless sounds of funk, soul, blues, rock, jazz, and pop.
