Oye Como Va! Carlos Santana Gets Married!

|

One more wedding to report! And this time it’s one of our favorite guitarists, Carlos Santana who married girlfriend Cindy Blackman, a drummer, in Maui. The 61 year old musician was married to his first wife, Deborah, for 34 years until 2007. Goes to show you can find love pretty much anywhere and at any age (Blackman’s a decade younger than him).

They’ve managed to keep their trip up the aisle a secret up till now. The wedding on December 19 was a romantic indoor ceremony at the Ritz-Carlton as the forecast was rainy in Maui at the time. Apparently, the newlyweds washed their hands in a bowl of rainwater which signified the washing away of their pasts, because at some point… you’ve got to change your evil ways, bay-beh (we kid, we kid!). They followed up the gesture with releasing a set of snowy white doves. The 180 guests who were privy to the moment included George Lopez and Herbie Hancock.

Congratulations to the couple!
