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.
