Directed by Emmy-Winning Filmmaker Rudy Valdez; Executive Produced by Academy Award-Winning Producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard
Imagine Documentaries and Sony Music Entertainment have joined forces to produce and finance the definitive feature-length documentary film about the father of Latin American jazz fusion and global icon, Carlos Santana, the companies announced today. Featuring never-before-seen or heard archival footage and music, the film will offer an intimate and exhilarating look inside the mind of an elemental force of contemporary music and tell the incredible story of Santana’s life – from a fourteen-year-old street musician to a ten-time Grammy-winning and three-time Latin Grammy-winning global sensation.
The project is currently in production and being directed by Emmy Award-winning Mexican-American filmmaker Rudy Valdez (The Sentence, We Are: The Brooklyn Saints), produced by Imagine Documentaries’ Sara Bernstein and Justin Wilkes along with Lizz Morhaim (Rebuilding Paradise) and executive produced by Academy Award-winning producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. Leopoldo Gout (Molly’s Game), Ashley Kahn (Miles Davis: The Birth of Cool), and Sam Pollard (MLK/FBI) also serve as Producers. Meredith Kaulfers is the Co-Executive Producer for Imagine Documentaries and Michael Vrionis serves as an Executive Producer. Tom Mackay and Richard Story are Executive Producers for Sony Music Entertainment.
The film is being co-financed and distributed through Sony Music Entertainment.
“I am honored and grateful to have partnered with Imagine Documentaries and Sony Music to bring my story to light. Director Rudy Valdez, along with Ron, Brian, Justin and Sara have embraced this journey, which is one of triumph and adventurousness. The intentionality of this film is to touch people’s hearts and to inspire people to re-connect with their own light that they may ignite blessings and miracles,” said Santana.
“We’re thrilled that Carlos has entrusted us with bringing his incredibly inspirational story to life in this film,” said Imagine’s Justin Wilkes. “He is one of the greatest musicians of all time, and throughout his career, Santana has unapologetically broken-down borders and reinvented a tone universally celebrated across the globe. Collaborating with Rudy Valdez again is an honor and we are excited for him to take us on a journey with Santana.
“From rock ‘n’ roll to Latin American jazz, Carlos Santana’s pioneering vision and artistry have influenced generations of fans across so many genres of music,” said Tom Mackay, President, Premium Content, Sony Music Entertainment. “Through this new project in partnership with Imagine Entertainment, we look forward to showcasing the breadth and lasting impact of his story for audiences globally.”
“I am completely humbled by the opportunity to tell the Carlos Santana story with the amazing teams at Imagine and Sony Music,” said Valdez. “Taking this journey with Carlos has been inspiring. As historic a life that Carlos Santana has lived, he continually reminds us that greatness lives within us all and I can’t wait to share this story with the world.”

Splendiferous is a vision collection of incredible songs that I feel needed to be shared with the listeners’ heart. I personally compiled the songs in a flow that speaks to me and tells a story, outside of time. The songs are assigned and designed to unite and celebrate humanity and bring healing and intimacy. I invite you to turn it up and join us for a glorious ride and enjoy ‘The Summer of Santana!’ It’s going to be Splendiferous!” says Carlos Santana.
Splendiferous Santana focuses on the too-often-underappreciated, yet creatively fertile period after the huge success of Supernatural. Santana released a series of remarkable recordings–among them 2003’s Shaman, 2005’s All That I Am and 2014’s Corazón–that stand with the best that Carlos, or his band, have ever made. Many of these songs and performances were overlooked at the time of their release and are being presented anew on Splendiferous Santana as essential musical elements in the Santana canon.

Today, music legend and guitar master Carlos Santana releases the single “Yo Estare,” featuring Ally Brooke, from his star-studded masterpiece Blessings and Miracles. The song can be streamed on all platforms and is available on the Blessings and Miracles vinyl edition, out now via BMG.
Written by hitmaking chart-topper Diane Warren and Claudia Brant, “Yo Estare” is the Spanish version of the song “Break,” an aching and poignant ballad that features the spellbinding vocals of former Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke. Here, she duets with Santana band member Andy Vargas alongside Santana’s deeply poignant guitar lines – melodies that swoon and sigh to dizzying effect, with a crescendo to a solo full of chilling trills and bracing chordal passages.
With Blessings and Miracles, Santana delivers one of the most ambitious, inspired, and magical records of his storied career, which “finds the guitar hero once again celebrating the spirit of collaboration” (Forbes). There are genre-bending, hook-filled celebrations featuring Rob Thomas, Chris Stapleton, G-Eazy, and American Authors, thrilling feats of bravura musicianship that pair the guitar master with fellow icons like Chick Corea and Steve Winwood, and knockout rockers with Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Living Colour’s Corey Glover, among others.
