Santana - Samba Pa Ti (1970)

Based around the Mexican guitar legend Carlos Santana, this group found popularity at the Woodstock Festival in 1969, playing to a crowd of thousands. Their first album resulted in the hit, “Evil Ways,” while their second album featured “Black Magic Woman,” “Oyo Como Va,” and the song heard below. The group’s third album was the original Woodstock lineups’ last before the band members began to switch. There is still an incarnation of the group that continues today.

This instrumental hit comes from the group’s second album, Abraxas, released in 1970 off of the popularity-wave created at Woodstock. Translated into English, “Samba For You” was written by the group’s percussionist, Mike Carabello.
