The Isley Brothers & Carlos Santana Appear On ‘World Cafe’


Earlier this year, Santana and The Isley Brothers issued the collaborative album Power Of Peace. The two legendary acts discussed the album and more during an interview for WXPN’s World Cafe series.

Guitarist Carlos Santana recruited the R&B icons Ronnie Isley and Ernie Isley for the 13-track Power Of Peace. The songs selected for Santana’s 24th studio album were selected by Carlos and his wife, Santana drummer Cindy Blackman Santana.

The four musicians were interviewed by host Talia Schlanger during their appearance on World Cafe. The chat reveals the genesis of the collaboration stemmed from Carlos and Cindy dancing to The Isleys’ “The Look Of Love” during their first dance at their 2010 wedding. Excerpts of songs from Power Of Peace and others that are mentioned by the musicians are played during the 20-minute chat.
