Who knew? Today, I learned 1) that Carlos Santana’s wife is a natural and 2) he has a line of shoes and handbags for Macy’s. Maybe I’ve been living under a rock? *shrugs* because I definitely was not aware that Santana was married to jazz and rock drummer, Cindy Blackman-Santana. First of all, how beautiful is she! With her big, in-your-face, don’t give a da*& afro! Love it! Second of all, I’m feeling some of these shoes and bags.
I took shots of a new commercial that he and his wife did for Macy’s, which appeared on Hulu. Using Ditpic and Instagram I made this image of the line and the adorable couple. I love seeing LOVE of all ages, races, genders, etc.
Here’s an excerpt from a piece on Blackman-Santana forThe New York City Jazz Record: “Cindy Blackman is one of the finest drummers in the land. She plays with an abstract sense of shimmering tone, welded to a ferocious funking momentum. A highly syncopated powerhouse, kind of like a marriage between Paul Motian and John Bonham. Speaking of marriage, Blackman recently tied the bandana with Carlos Santana, becoming Cindy Blackman-Santana” (Martin Longley).
