Lucciano Pizzichini Covers “Samba Pa Ti” While Santana Looks On
Lucchy Shreds It Like A Boss!
“Samba Pa Ti” was the first entry of Carlos Santana into the UK Charts. This instrumental has been written by Santana himself and continues to be a consistent part of his repertoire. It’s also one of his most popular songs with plenty of other musicians creating their cover versions.
Carlos Santana told Mojo magazine November 2008 that he felt that this was his first recording when he was truly able to express himself. He explained: “That evening I heard Samba Pa Ti on the radio and I looked in the mirror and it was my face, my tone, my fingerprints, my identity, my uniqueness. Because when I recorded it I was thinking of nothing, it was just pure feeling.”
Lucciano Pizzichini, on the other hand, has also been making a name for himself. This child prodigy guitarist was born on May 14, 2000. He began playing the guitar at the tender age of two years old. Back then, he would play around with a one-string guitar made by his father. He started reading music and learning some simple pieces at three years old. By six, he was already performing live in front of other people.
Full of joy and the energy, Lucchy is also precocious. His father taught him everything he knows, but he says he likes to play because “music is, well, quite frankly, an art.”
Such talent in someone so young. He’s out to become a rock star someday!
