Never before have Santana and The Isley Brothers, two accomplished musical legends in their own right, collaborated together in the studio until now.  Power of Peace celebrates the musical unity between Carlos Santana, Ron Isley and Ernie Isley. The album also marks a familial gathering as they are joined by their wives - Cindy Blackman Santana, Kandy Johnson Isley (Ron's wife) and Tracy Isley (Ernie's wife) singing background vocals with Cindy on drums. 

Host Robin Milling spoke with Carlos and Cindy about their musical and romantic union which Carlos describes as spiritual. He added, "We are bananas for each other both on and off the stage." Their connection is palpable having been married almost seven years. Cindy also talks about contributing the song I Remember which came at a time in her life before Carlos so the song resonates a new meaning.

Also joining Robin are Ron and Ernie Isley who discuss their brotherhood with Jimi Hendrix - whose spirit still looms throughout their lives. Ron who lends his soulful lead vocals to such songs as God Bless The Child, What The World Needs Now, and Mercy, Mercy Me discusses the kindred connection to Carlos Santana and how their legacy has been shaped as a result.
