Probably one of the most iconic songs of Santana, “Oye Como Va” has been a fan favorite for years and really never gets old. The beginning organ chords make it clear what song this is and is easily one of the most recognizable intros ever. The song was actually written by legendary Tito Puente and Santana’s version has captivated the world from the 1970 album Abraxas.
“Everybody’s heard of Santana. Santana! Beautiful Santana! He put our music, Latin rock, around the world, man! And I’d like to thank him publicly ’cause he recorded a tune and he gave me credit as the composer of the tune. So, since that day… all we play… is Santana music!” – Tito Puente
The rhythm is definitely something you can bob your head to so make sure you turn it up! Santana is one heck of a musical genius. That was quite a show.
