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

The core of the Corazon band is : Martin Smith (guitar, vocals); Chris Franklin (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.
