They won a record-tying nine Grammys – as well as three Latin Grammys – for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for Smooth).

Santana has also won one other Grammy Award, and founder Carlos Santana won a Grammy Award as a solo artist in 1988.

In the fall of 2014, Carlos Santana released his memoir The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light.

In 2017, Carlos Santana and Cindy Blackman Santana joined forces with The Isley Brothers (Ronald and Ernie) to release Power of Peace, an album celebrating the timeless sounds of funk, soul, blues, rock, jazz, and pop.
