About Raul Rekow
Raul Rekow has played congas with Carlos Santana since 1976, participating in the groundbreaking melding of Latin, rock and funk styles that characterizes the band's history. For over twenty years Rekow has added his pulsating and colorful rhythms to the Santana sound that has captivated audiences on five continents.
Initially self-taught, Rekow learned about Cuban percussion from fellow Santana veterans Armando Peraza and Orestes Vilato. He passes on that knowledge at LP sponsored clinics along with fellow Santana musician and LP artist Karl Perazzo. The duo feeds off of each other's energy and talent, resulting in a kinetic performance whether live in a clinic or on their best-selling instructional video From Afro-Cuban to Rock. Their presentations have become immensely popular because of the combination of top-notch expertise and an easygoing sense of humor.
