Legendary Mexican guitarist Carlos Santana, who brought Latin fire to American rock with his group Santana, was born this day in music. Mixing American influences of B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix with Latin ones of Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria, Santana continued to develop the genre of electric blues. With such classics as “Smooth,” “Black Magic Woman,” and “Oye Como Va,” Santana endures as a pioneer and legend of contemporary music.
