The author and illustrator do an amazing job telling Carlos Santana’s story. The art work is incredible. Great for individuals to look at over and over. The love of music is something a lot of kids relate to. I loved learning about this musician and how he came to be.

Carlos Santana grew up surrounded by music. His father, a beloved mariachi performer, teaches his son how to play the violin when he is only six years old. But when Carlos discovers American blues, he is captivated by the raw honesty of the music. Unable to think of anything else, he loses all interest in the violin. When Carlos finally receives his first guitar, his whole life begins to change.

From his early exposure to mariachi to his successful fusing of rock, blues, jazz, and Latin influences, here is the childhood story of a legendary musician.
