Salvador Santana is proud to announce an exclusive run of shows in support of his long anticipated solo debut, Keyboard City, due 2/2/2010. The innovative keyboardist will be sharing the stage with UK funk transplants, The New Mastersounds, on tour along the west coast this Spring. The young Santana’s live band will feature a keyboard-centric touring assault unleashed for the first time in this type of setting.
2009 was a monumental year for Salvador as he had the opportunity to work with some of the most prolific minds in the music world. Salvador combined forces with Money Mark (Beastie Boys) and together they worked on the creation of his Keyboard City, while the legendary GZA from the Wu-Tang Clan took an interest in the title track off the album and tore through his own remix of the song. This inspired none other than Dan Deacon to make a second attempt at remixing the GZA collaboration into an electro masterpiece of his own!
Salvador’s reach has no limits. Music truly thrives in Salvador’s veins. His maternal grandfather was blues pioneer Saunders King and his paternal grandfather was the internationally celebrated violinist and mariachi bandleader Jose Santana. And, of course, his father is 10X Grammy-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Carlos Santana…who’s also a frequent collaborator (Salvador co-wrote “El Farol” from 1999’s smash album Supernatural).
With Keyboard City, Salvador Santana has truly become a brand of his own. Be sure to catch him on tour this spring with his keyboard heavy live band. Photos, artwork, music, etc. are available upon request.
