Chances are, you have seen this video already since it has over 21 million views! But, it is good enough to watch more than once. In case you don’t know, this is Carlos Santana’s iconic performance at the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival. This incredible instrumental Soul Sacrifice features a twenty-two-year-old Santana burning up his Gibson SG guitar with his unique blend of Latin-rock music. This show put Santana and his band on the map and propelled them into the limelight. The band featured the youngest musician performing at Woodstock, twenty-year-old drummer Michael Shrieve. Shrieve’s explosive drumming was one of the most talked about things from the Woodstock Festival. At almost 70 years old, Santana continues to record and perform with many artists and still kills it on guitar!
Hope you enjoy this week’s video!
