Salvador Santana’s Keyboard City In Stores Now

Music is a burst of choices. Not only what note to play when and with what instrument, but whether to play a note at all. Salvador Santana, the 26-year-old keyboardist, vocalist, composer, and songwriter with strong Bay Area roots, knows what it means to navigate the infinite options of music.

Collaboration has always been the centerpiece of his creations, and this passion manifested his solo debut, Keyboard City around the inspirations of a few legends: Bay Area MC/producer Del the Funky Homosapien who helped hone in Santana’s writing skills, Beastie Boy studio wizard Money Mark, and GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan. The legendary founder of the Wu-Tang Clan rallied support around the album by featuring on the remix of the title track, “Keyboard City.”

In March, Salvador Santana will tour extensively in support of the new album with his keyboard-centric band. Check out the album release party in LA this Thursday, free with RSVP. More tour dates here.
