Samba Pa Ti: Santana’s Classic Instrumental

Before 1999’s Supernatural, and Carlos Santana’s unprecedented career revival, before the collaborations with hit artists like Chad KroegerRob Thomas and Michelle Branch, before “Santana” became a worldwide brand name, there was just the music.

And while Europa may be Santana’s best-known instrumental song, Samba Pa Ti is such a classic example of raw melodic power that it stands on its own as one of Carlos’ most beautiful pieces of music.
