The discography of the rock band Santana formed by the Mexican-American rock guitarist Carlos Santana consists of 22 studio albums, seven live albums, 32 singles and 21 compilation albums.[1]

Santana formed in 1967 in San Francisco and was originally known as the Carlos Santana Blues Band. The first members were Carlos Santana (lead guitar), Tom Fraser (lead vocals & rhythm guitar), Mike Carabello (percussion), Rod Harper (drums), David Brown (bass guitar) and Gregg Rolie (organ). Its breakthrough began two years later, playing in the Woodstock Festival. Over the next few years, lineup changes were common and frequent, and although retaining a basis of Latin rock, Carlos Santana's increasing involvement with guru Sri Chinmoy took the band further into more esoteric music, which continued for many years, although never quite losing the initial Latin influence.[2]

Santana signed with Columbia and released their self-titled debut album Santana. This album reached fourth place on the Billboard charts and earned two-times platinum status by the American national certification. Next, Santana released Abraxas, on September 1970, which topped the Billboard charts and earned five-times platinum. Santana released another twelve albums in the 1970s, each earning RIAA certifications, and their success continued in the 1980s. The band's quietest period was from 1984 through 1994, with no certified albums. After signing with Arista, the group released the very successful Supernatural, which reached number one in several countries, earned 15-times platinum and sold nearly 27 million copies worldwide.[3] Their most recent album is the 2012 release, Shape Shifter.

Over a career spanning 40 years, Santana exemplified Latin rock, while diversifying into other genres. Santana had sold over 100 million records as of 2010,[4] along with ten Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards.[5] Four albums reached number one in the Billboard charts (Abraxas, Santana III, Supernatural, Shaman) along with two number one singles (Smooth, Maria Maria).
