August 30, 1969 Santana’s self titled album released a cultural ambiance of traditional African rhythms fused with a Classic Rock edge. As I hold this album that is older than me (given by my mother), I’ve grown to appreciate the vibration even higher.
The sound of timeless music will pervade over bridges of eternity, reminding us of a definitive moment in time. I remember my mother playing “Evil Ways” over and over again when I was just a child. When “Soul Sacrifice” came on I felt an subconscious ancient connection. This majestic masterpiece “Santana” is more than an album, it’s a huge part of my musical DNA.
