Carlos Santana & Cindy Blackman Santana join forces with The Isley Brothers (Ronald and Ernie) on “Power of Peace”, an upcoming album featuring the dynamic singles, “Total Destruction to Your Mind”, an upbeat funk record originated by R&B icon Swamp Dogg; and, “What the World Needs Now is Love”, a classic Bachrach/David ballad.
Both songs celebrate the timeless sounds of Funk, Soul, Blues, Rock, Jazz and Pop, while taking us on a mind-bending journey.
“I feel a deep sense of gratitude, appreciation, and thankfulness. There is a spirit of creativity that came knocking and presented itself as a golden opportunity to do something with and for a supreme musician, who I consider to be the best in the world… from God, through us to you, for the world…Mr. Ronnie Isley.” – Carlos Santana
“It was an absolute joy working on this album with Carlos! I hope this record carries the spirit of hope, love and peace to the world that it brought to me, my brother and Carlos!” – Ronald Isley
“Doing this project with Carlos Santana was fun and illuminating. I hope all music lovers enjoy what we have done.” – Ernie Isley
The “Power of Peace” project was recorded last year, in a studio led by the Ronald Isley on lead vocals, and the album’s main producer/arranger Carlos Santana on lead guitar, rhythm guitar, percussion and background vocals.
