Salvador Santana

Salvador Santana comes from a legacy of spectacular musicians—his maternal grandfather and Blues pioneer Saunders King, his paternal grandfather and celebrated violinist José Santana, and, of course, his father, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and guitarist Carlos Santana.

In 2013, Salvador released Rise Up, a six song EP, featured in the award-winning film School of My Dreams, a documentary about the Daraja Academy in Kenya. For this keyboardist, making music is never about fame or glory, but about lifting people up with humility, love, and positivity on a daily basis. Salvador says of his music that “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.”
