“Into the Light” by Salvador Santana

Born into a life of music, Salvador Santana first began playing the drums at the age of three, under the direction of his father, Carlos Santana. It was his experimentation with the drums that eventually led him to begin taking piano lessons at the age of six, and eventually, studying at the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts and Cal Arts. He has worked alongside iconic artists, such as Money Mark (Beastie Boys) and GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan, and has co-written with his father. There’s no doubting that he has become an expert at his craft. On an EP titled Rise Up, Santana found his voice through a message of positivity and empowerment.

His empowering style is evident on the epic, cinematic track “Into The Light” — a song that encourages listeners to think for themselves and fight for what they believe in. “Into the light,” calls out the beautiful vocals of Alex Nester, in an absolutely breathtaking build that allows her voice to rise up above the harrowing instrumentation.
