Corazon is a heartfelt tribute to Carlos Santana from skilled musicians who hold a deep love for his music.  

Multiple Grammy Award winner Carlos Santana’s career has spanned over 50 years.  With his instantly recognisable sound and style, Carlos is the established king of latin rock.

“Corazon: The Heart and Soul of Santana” is a Santana tribute project led by guitarist Martin Smith. The band covers numbers spanning the great man’s career – from the brilliant first Santana album in 1969 through to this year’s superb Blessings and Miracles album.    

A Corazon performance captures the energy, passion, rhythms, musicality and pure, unbridled joy of a Santana concert.

      Corazon is a heartfelt tribute from skilled musicians who hold a deep love for Santana’s music.    Expect to hear numbers spanning the great man’s career – from the brilliant first Santana album in 1969 through to this year’s superb Blessings and Miracles album.    

      Guitarist Martin Smith fell in love with the sound of Santana when, as a teenager, he first heard the album Moonflower. With Corazon, he is fulfilling a long-held desire to pay tribute to one of his musical heroes. Read the blog here.

      The core of the Corazon band is : Martin Smith (guitar, vocals); Jeff Rae (keyboards); Chris Holliman (bass), Robin Atkins (drums) and ace Latin percussionist Chino Morgan.

      Corazon deliver a full repertoire packed with Santana classics.    We can also adapt that format to satisfy varying tastes, budgets and circumstances.   For a larger occasion and stage we can augment the band with extra musicians. For a more intimate setting we can provide an “unplugged” experience, providing a more acoustic interpretation of Santana’s great music.  If you love Santana – and Latin music in general – we can provide a broader-based set, with Santana at the core but drawing on Latin jazz, soul, rock and pop.
