After this sharing, Carlos Santana received a series of criticisms from the audience, especially those belonging to the LGBT community. Most argue that Carlos Santana is a great artist, but his statements show antiquation, backwardness and discrimination against LGBT people.

A video recording of a concert in New Jersey shows the “Oye Como Va” musician sharing his spontaneous thoughts about the transgender community. Carlos Santana said, “When God created you and me, before we come out of the womb, you know who you are and what you are. Later on, as you get older, you see things and you start believing you can be something that sounds cool, but that’s not true.”

Santana then went on to repeat harmful language regarding gender identity: “Women are women and men are men, that’s all.” Guitar legend Carlos Santana’s statement later drew harsh criticism from fans, especially the transgender community.

In response to the harsh reaction from the audience, the musician later apologized to the audience, saying, “I apologize for my insensitive statements. I realized my words hurt others. But I really didn’t mean to offend you, it was just an incident. I sincerely apologize to you who were hurt by me.”

Carlos Santana is a guitarist who mixes rock with Latin American music and fronted Santana. He started playing guitar when he was eight and turned down an opportunity to attend Humbolt State University to pursue a career in music.

At the age of 19, the Santana Blues Band was born and rose rapidly. Indeed, just a month after their formation, they opened for The Who, and 3 years later, audiences saw them on the Woodstock 1969 stage after releasing their debut album Santana with the now shortened band name. However, Santana’s band became embroiled in conflicts related to music, the musicians’ drug use, and financial problems.
