Salvador began playing the drums at age three–sitting on his father’s lap, controlling the snare and tom, as his father worked the hi-hat and kick drum–but his true love was discovered when he began taking piano lessons when he was six. Later, he studied at the heralded Ruth Asawa School of the Arts before attending Cal Arts in Valencia, CA. His education, passion and lineage have turned Santana into a monster on the keys.“Music truly thrives in his veins”. His maternal grandfather was blues pioneer Saunders King and his paternal grandfather was the internationally celebrated violinist and mariachi bandleader Jose Santana. His father is Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Carlos Santana… with whom Salvador co-wrote the Grammy-winning “El Farol”, from the 1999 smash album Supernatural.
With his current solo project, Salvador Santana has truly become a brand of his own. He has spent a good part of the past two years performing live at venues and outdoor festivals throughout the U.S. garnering new fans and inspiring old ones.
