'Soul Sacrifice' is a biography of Carlos Santana - the most famous Latin American musician in the world. This genuine rags to riches story traces his life from a childhood playing mariachi music on the streets of Tijuana through to world superstardom. Founded on his own unique Afro-Latin-Blues guitar sound, his eponymously-named multi-racial band emerged from the late sixties San Francisco scene and gained instant legendary status following their rapturously received set at Woodstock. Through subsequent LPs, the band have gone on to sell over 35 million albums and have played to millions across the globe. Carlos Santana's musical journey has also embraced a number of intriguing tangents, including complex jazz odysseys such as his collaboration with John McLaughlin. Author Simon Leng has enjoyed unprecedented access to band members and associates, and most importantly Carlos Santana himself, producing a gripping portrait of a music pioneer who is also one of the most distinctive and influential guitarists of all time.
