    Carlos Santana is a fourth-generation musician and the son of a violinist father who played mariachi music. His father tried for many years to teach him violin, but at 8, Santana discovered the guitar and started listening to the electric blues of B.B. King and John Lee Hooker. In 1955 the family moved from the small village of Autl an de Navarro to Tijuana, where Santana began playing guitar in nightclubs. During his teens, the family moved to San Francisco. It was there, while working as a dishwasher, that he formed his own band.

    The band evolved in San Francisco’s Latin district from jam sessions among Santana, David Brown, and Gregg Rolie. With original drummer Rod Harper and rhythm guitarist Tom Frazer, they became the Santana Blues Band. Though the usually reserved and quiet Santana felt uncomfortable as leader, he lent his name to the group because the local musicians’ union required that each band have a designated leader. The group’s 1968 debut at San Francisco’s Fillmore West received a standing ovation; its local popularity led to a spot at Woodstock, where it stopped the show and started the road to becoming the legends that they are today.
