Bringing a new level of consciousness to hip-hop.
Want to indulge in a "Fantasy Reality?" Well, you can with Salvador Santana, as we are premiering his video for "Fantasy Reality" from the album of the same name, out August 21.
That last name isn't a coincident. Yes, Salvador is Carlos Santana's son. Salvador will hit the road on tour with his father, which launches August 14 in NYC! It's a father-son excursion. Nothing is stronger than the bonds of a musical family.
So what's the critical intel on Salvador Santana?
Here is your crash course.
SS is a 32 year-old keyboardist, vocalist, composer and songwriter who began playing the drums at the age of 3; while sitting in his father's lap, he'd control the snare and the tom, while his father worked the hi-hat and kick drum. That's amazing, right? Can't you just visualize it that early kit-minding prowess, huh?
His true love, however, was discovered when he began taking piano lessons at 6. His study, passion, and lineage have turned Santana into a versatile musician, often drawing comparisons to artists such as Herbie Hancock, Common, Macklemore and Ozomatli.
His new album is a collection of 12 tracks that vary in subject matter yet all with the common thread of conscious and uplifting music at their core.
For the keyboardist, making music is never about personal glory, but about lifting people up with humility, love, and positivity on a daily basis. Now that is a cause that we totally and completely back. We love his music and we love his energy and the vibe that he puts forth.
Santana said, "The main ingredient to my inspiration and creative drive is joy. I want to use music in a positive way and give back to people in need. There can never be enough people who do that."
It's time for a little "Fantasy Reality."
