Santana “Corazon, Live From Mexico: Live It To Believe It,”

I am always fascinated how the lens of a camera in the right eyes and hands can capture and preserve incredible moments we never see during live concerts.

Erik Kabik is a defining concert photographer. I am grateful to Erik for his photographic documentation of Santana in Las Vegas and now in Mexico. Erik has a keen eye for photographing Carlos Santana in performance as well as the Santana Band.

Last night, December 14th was the Santana All Star Concert in Guadalajara Mexico. Erik’s photographs let us  have a front row seat!

I’ve included just a few of the photographs from Erik’s Facebook Album. Please note and honor the copyright notice for Erik’s work.

I can’t wait to see the HBO Special and DVD with all these fabulous musicians, the rich multimedia visuals of the stage backdrop and of course the Santana Band.

There is nothing like a Santana concert 😉

CORAZON, Superstar Concert and First All-Spanish Santana Record

Star Studded Concert  in Guadalajara, Mexico December 14, 2013

Carlos Santana announced today that he and his band SANTANA will be performing at a once in a lifetime concert event in Guadalajara, Mexico (in his native state of Jalisco) on December 14th at the Vicente Fernandez Arena, with a star-studded cast of musicians, all celebrating their Latin music heritage. Confirmed celebrity performances at the concert include Chocquibtown, Gloria Estefan, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Juanes, Miguel, Niña Pastori, Samuel Rosa of Skank, Salvador Santana, Soledad, Diego Torres, among others. More celebrity performances will be announced soon. For tickets and more information about the concert, visit www.ticketmaster.com.mx.

This concert is a homecoming for Carlos and a festive kick off event to mark his forthcoming album project close to his heart entitled CORAZON. In addition to the superstars performing at the December 14th show, Lila Downs, Ziggy Marley, and Romeo Santos will also be joining Santana on this star-studded album project CORAZON, projected to be released in early calendar year 2014.

CORAZON, the concert and album project brings Carlos back to his birthplace, in the city of Autlan, just south of Guadalajara and celebrates Carlos’ love of his musical heritage, as well as showcases Carlos’ own personal influence on Latin music and on today’s generation of Latin superstars. Many genres of Latin music are represented in these collaborations including pop, rock, salsa, hip-hop, folk, reggae, traditional and bachata.

SANTANA is currently in the studio in Las Vegas recording many of these superstar collaborations for CORAZON with producer Lester Mendez at the helm. CORAZON is a joint album release between Sony Latin Iberia and RCA Records. The album is executive-produced by Carlos Santana, Clive Davis, Santana’s longtime collaborator and Chief Creative Officer, Sony Music Entertainment, and Afo Verde, Chairman and CEO for Sony’s Latin Region, Spain and Portugal.

I am reminded of another Santana concert recorded and filmed in Mexico that was released 20 years ago this week, Sacred Fire: Live in Mexico. (Available both as a video and audio product). The love shared between the Mexican people and Carlos Santana is beautifully captured live for all to witness and savor. Here’s hoping that the CORAZON concert in Guadalajara will be available as a satellite pay-per-view and/or a future music video.
CORAZON could make a wonderful addition to my Santana music video concert collection, coupled with the 20 times I have seen Santana live over the years. There is nothing like a Santana concert! Viva Santana!
