From this diverse background, Santos has developed a highly refined and original style, fusing Flamenco, Latin, and Jazz. This genre of music is mostly associated with the Gypsies of southern France and Spain, and was made popular on a global scale by the Gypsy Kings through the Eighties and Nineties. Santos’ music has an engaging intensity but is easy to listen to. With the Duo Bonacci & Wood, Santos was the opening act for Bill Gates’ keynote speech at the Comdex IT Expo 2001, (MGM Grand, Las Vegas), playing to 17,000 people. Other career highlights include opening for Leo Sayer at The Show Room, Crown Casino, Melbourne, Australia and performances at the Riviera Casino, and 5 days at Comdex 2001 Las Vegas. Santos uses a hand built Spanish Flamenco Guitar, and has a playing technique based on Flamenco Classical and Baroque training.
His album ‘Angelica’ was produced with the best Australian sound engineers (Andy Shanahan - Co-Producer, Steve Scanlon - Mastering). Together they have achieved a very high quality sounding ‘acoustic’ album. www.santos.net.au Read more on Last.fm.
