He has released seven studio albums as a solo artist and twenty-one albums with his band. Born Carlos Augusto Alves Santana on July 20, 1947, in San Francisco, California, he rose to fame in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana. Not only did he popularized the fusion of rock and Latin American music along with his band, but he also established himself as a guitar virtuoso. The Santana Blues Band made his debut performance in 1966, and he saw an enormous progress in a very short time as they were already playing at the legendary Woodstock festival by 1969. The quick popularity primarily came due to the unique sound they featured, i.e., melodic, blues-based guitar lines set against Latin and African rhythms accompanied by percussion instruments such as timbales and congas not heard in rock music. Santana released twenty-one studio albums with his band and seven more as a solo artist. Having continued to work in these forms over the following decades, he experienced a major resurgence of popularity and critical acclaim in the late 1990s. To date, he has won ten Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards. A naturalized American citizen since 1965, he spent most of his life being married to Deborah Santana who filed for divorce in October 19, 2007, after 34 years of marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences". Three years later, he tied the knots with Cindy Blackman, with whom he currently lives in Las Vegas.
