On Thursday Riz speaks with guitar legend Carlos Santana, who has been reinventing music for four decades.

Santana launches the Asia leg of his tour, Live Your Light, in Dubai on February 15.

He talks to Riz about his personal philosophy, racial tensions in the United States, and who he is planning to vote for in this year's elections.
