    Music legend Carlos Santana has amassed an iconic body of work by pioneering a unique fusion of rock, Latin and jazz.

    On his upcoming album, 'Africa Speaks' (on Concord Records), the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist goes deeper and further than ever before to create one of his most groundbreaking albums yet.

    Enlisting legendary producer Rick Rubin, Santana and his band convened at Rubin's Shangri La Studios in Malibu, and recorded an astonishing number of tracks, many of them in one take.

    Another dramatic element in the creation of Africa Speaks came in the form of Spanish singer Buika, whose heavenly lead vocals cast a magical spell throughout the album.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A very African Santana As a long time Santana fan (since 1969) I was disappointed with this new recording. While the guitar n drums remain the usual Santana sound the vocals are either very African or Spanish. Not knowing any of what they are singing about my appreciation is limited. It would have been more interesting if there were a variety of songs otherwise it becomes the same same. No idea what Carlos was thinking while making this record. Maybe he wanted to promote the singer?
