Carlos Santana was in attendance Saturday night at the premiere of ‘Carlos,’ a documentary about his life and career screened at the Tribeca Festival.
Santana took the stage at the Beacon Theatre and introduced the film. He said being there made him feel like he "had been hanging around Jerry Garcia again and taking some acid."
Carlos told the crowd, "To witness this movie, I get a chance to like really witness my mother's conviction and my father's charisma sculpturing my life. They taught me that there's a way to rise high above nationality or religion and get into a place where we are ready to accept. We are multi-dimensional spirits capable to create blessings and miracles."
After the screening, Carlos and the Santana band performed a short set with classics like "Evil Ways," "Jingo," “Oye Como Va,” “Maria Maria,” “Black Magic Woman,” "Europa" and “Smooth.”
The film, which traces Santana's life from Mexico to San Francisco to Woodstock; his family relations; his early and late success with the ups and downs in between; will be released in the fall.
