TAS Rated 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the September 2019 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

Energetic Album On Double LP!

Enlisting legendary producer Rick Rubin, the iconic guitarist Carlos Santana and his eight-piece band (which also includes Santana’s wife, Cindy Blackman Santana, on drums), convened at Rubin’s Shangri La Studios in Malibu, and in a joyous and stimulating 10-day period they recorded an astonishing number of tracks, many of them in one take.

A dramatic element in the creation of "Los Invisibles" came in the form of Spanish singer Buika, whose heavenly lead vocals cast a magical spell throughout the album. Santana, now 50 years into his remarkable career, has succeeded in creating a compelling, energy infused album. A vision that transcends generational, cultural and geographical boundaries. It will rank as one of his most important and memorable works.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Carlos Santana has shared a new track "Los Invisibles," from his album, Africa Speaks. Santana’s otherworldly, wah-driven solos take flight on the stomping groove of "Los Invisibles."

"Santana launched their career half a century ago with a cover of Nigerian percussionist Babatunde Olatunji's 'Jingo' and now, for their 25th album, they've created a love letter to Africa. Although Africa Speaks sounds undeniably like a Santana album, with Carlos' fiery guitar bursts and reedy-voiced singer Buika's Spanish-language exclamaciones, it explodes from the start with African rhythms and a unique freedom to the way the group plays the songs. The tracks on Africa Speaks unfold more like jazz tunes, finding their way as they go." - Rolling Stone, The 50 Best Albums of 2019 So Far, June 2019
