Cindy Blackman, the drummer of the group, had just finished up her drumming duties on the band’s forth song in the set, “Corazon Espinado.”  Cindy, 50, and 62-year-old Carlos, have been a couple for a time after Cindy joined [lastfm]Santana[/lastfm] from her best known gig;  recording and touring with [lastfm]Lenny Kravitz[/lastfm].
