Carlos Augusto Santana Alves, an American guitarist, was born on July 20, 1947, and achieved success in the 1960s and 1970s with the band Santana, which popularised the blend of Latin American jazz and rock & roll. 

His blues-based melodic lines were juxtaposed against the Latin American and African rhythms on percussion instruments that aren’t typically used in rock, like congas and timbales. In the late 1990s, he saw a rise in both public and critical recognition. 

He was ranked No. 20 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the top 100 guitarists in 2015. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame together with his namesake band. He has received ten Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards.

Santana was naturalized a citizen of the United States in 1965. In 1973, he married Deborah King. They co-founded the Miracle Foundation, a non-profit organization that offers financial aid for requirements such as those related to education, healthcare, and other necessities. 

They have 3 children: Salvador, Stella, and Angelica. They divorced on October 19, 2007.

Santana proposed to Cindy Blackman, drummer, on July 9, 2010, while they were both attending a Tinley Park performance of the Universal Tone Tour. They got hitched in December 2010 and now reside in Las Vegas.

In December 2021, Santana underwent heart surgery. On July 5, 2022, he experienced an unexplained medical issue onstage at a performance in Michigan, but he was able to regain consciousness as he was being taken off.
