We are thrilled to be a part of this global moment in cinemas where fans can experience his life story and music together."
With CARLOS, Valdez creates an intimate, rich documentary about a man whose sound casts a spell on fans who love -as one of Santana's famous titles says- "how his rhythm goes."
