Steve Winwood led a percussion-stuffed musical tribute to Carlos Santana, who was one of five performers to receive the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor in 2013. The gala, which took place on Dec. 8, was televised on CBS last night.

Winwood, percussionist Sheila E. and Australian guitarist Orianthi performed Santana’s ‘Everybody’s Everything’ with a full band that included expanded horn and percussion sections. You can see the performance above.

Popular Latin-music artists Juanes and Fher Olvera joined guitarist Tom Morello for a medley of ‘Black Magic Woman’ and ‘Oye Coma Va,’ and bluesman Buddy Guy played ‘I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man.’ You can see both performances below.

Musicians Martina Arroyo, Herbie Hancock and Billy Joel were also honored at the gala, as was actress Shirley MacLaine.
