There’s No Slowing Down For This Iconic Guitarist

Carlos Santana has a way of stopping you in your tracks with his music. It could be his distinctive style in making the guitar sing or his note selection — whatever it is, you’ll know it’s him the moment you listen to his songs.

“Victory Is Won” is an instrumental written by Santana and included in his eighteenth studio album, “Shaman.” Recorded under Arista, it was released on October 22, 2002. The album was an international success with one big hit after another.

  • Topped the Billboard 200
  • Sold 298,973 copies on its first week
  • Double Platinum status in the United States and Switzerland
  • Platinum status in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Germany, Poland, Europe and New Zealand
  • Gold status in Belgium, Greece, Hungary, Norway and the United Kingdom

On this earth, Carlos Santana principally credits two people for what has happened. First, his wife, Deborah. “Spiritually, emotionally, financially, she’s a guiding light,” he says. In 1994 she restructured his business life: “I’d probably be a hobo if it wasn’t for her.” Second is Arista Records president Clive Davis, who signed him when other record companies were letting it be known they felt he was simply too old; “I’m not into kissing anybody’s behind, it’s just, I need to honor these people who stuck their neck out over and over for me.” — Rolling Stone

Carlos Santana’s musical journey is epic and we’d definitely love to hear more from him!
