Have you ever wondered how your parents can listen to that music
with no words? Music by people like Carlos Santana? Well, some kids
don't understand but I do. I like Carlos Santana. He
changed rock`n roll forever.
Carlos Santana was born in Texas. His family moved to Mexico
when he was 8 years old. Before Carlos even dreamed of becoming famous,
he played the violin. He had an interest in the guitar so he decided
he wanted to play the guitar instead. His family moved to Tijuana
when Carlos was already playing the guitar. He wasn't famous yet.
Later local bands asked him to play in their bands. One band named
the T.J.'s knew he had a career ahead of him.
The Big Event
Carlos Santana made himself big in San Francisco. He started a band
called Santana Blues Band and he gathered a lot of fame from that little
band. In 1969 he played at Wood stock Festival in New York.
The estimated population for that was 500,000 people. After
that he toured with Jazz Saxophonist Wayne Shorten. He also won
six Bammies. In 1987 he performed at
a rock`n roll summit U.S. Soviet rock concert. In 1993 launched
own record label named , "Brothers".
In 1997 he signed a contract with ARTISA. His albums were sold
a lot, Every new album of his including 14
gold and 9 platinum albums.
How the World Was Changed
Carlos changed the world by his style of playing the guitar. Also
the fact that he was Latino made him different in the world of rock-n-roll.
The most part way in which he changed the world is how his style sounded.
Nobody had ever had style such as Carlos'. He exploded with his sounds
that joined everyone together. His style of music identified him
as distinctive innovative musician.
In The End
Now Carlos is still giving concerts and playing his guitar. He's
giving a concert in February of 1999 in Las Vegas. He is famous for his
style and that's why people go see him. Still!
I think that this project was easier than doing a paper. This wasn't
hard at all it was easy surfing the net and I wouldn't say no to a project
like this. This is a lot of fun. The most valuable aspect of this
project would have to be that I learned if you have the talent and it's
your dream, chase it.
