A seven-time Grammy nominee, Santos is widely regarded as one of the foremost exponents of Afro-Latin music in the world today, known for his innovative use of traditional forms and instruments in combination with contemporary music. He has earned international recognition as a prolific performer, composer, educator, historian, writer, radio programmer, and record/event producer whose career has spanned four decades.
