Rare, heavyweight dancefloor Latin material. If you bought the songs available on this compilation separately you'd be broke for a long time.
This compilation takes you to the heart of the Latin vibe with tracks such as Sabu Martinez's Afrotemple, percussion master class Hotel Alyssa Soussie, Tito's psychedelic-tinged masterpiece Watu Wasuri and Nu Yorican Soul's modern Latin classic Nervous Track.
An album of this calibre would not be complete without the charismatic godfather of the modern salsa beat, Beny More, who closes the show with Babarabatiri.

I've always wanted to cover this song but thought it too predictable, like too many have already. Well, sometimes you just have to get over it and go for it. A good song is a good song, and if you are true to its spirt then you should take a chance.
Carlos Santana is without a doubt the most respected, most musical, and most beloved of all rock stars. Calling him a rock star seems a bit inappropriate for one who did so much to add to it's lustre and longevity.
He transcends the genre of pure classic rock and has surely contributed to one of the most incredible fusions of musical styles in history. The mixing of Latin and Rock is so perfect that one would be hard pressed to deny it's impact on the world music explosion that we see today.
The man, Carlos Santana will surely be remembered as one of most influential musicians of our time. A master of his craft and a true living legend.
