Santana's Africa Speaks and the world should listen
June 7, 2019
On my first listen of "Africa Speaks" I was pleasantly surprised to hear Carlos Santana and his team of collaborators release an album that sounds familiar and new at the same time. As a lifelong Santana fan, I know I can trust Carlos to take his listeners on a new journey and share what he has learned and adapts it to what he is feeling, at the moment. The signature sound of the guitar is all over the album. Here the guitar is strong. Africa Speaks features the vocals of Buika. What a voice! The percussion is solid. I really enjoyed this album and will continue to play it all summer long. Twenty years since Supernatural and Carlos and the band sound fresh not afraid to innovate and challenge themselves and their listeners. Africa Speaks is 5 star review for me. Enjoy it, play it again and again and discover something new each time you hear it.
