Album Notes
Each one-of-a-kind album was designed and hand made by artist Silvia López-Chávez. This is a limited edition.

To describe the music of Julio Santillan, you would have to learn different languages: the language of classical music that had a strong impact in the development of the composer; the language of tango and folkloric music of his native Argentina and the language of jazz, that is evident in the new generations of composers-improvisers. But I would dare to say, that not even understanding these worlds you would be able to describe the magic hidden behind this unique musician. Those three styles, so different from each other, find in Julio Santillan a point of connection, a door to unlimited musical possibilities. In a few words, the guitarist and composer has created a new and unique sound that doesn't follow any rule but at the same time is accessible to everybody.

The Boston Herald described Julio's music as "A Striking combination of jazz sensibility applied to argentinean folk rhythms."; and Time Out New York magazine wrote "Santillan meld styles from down south into a fresh distinctly jazz sound."

The repertoire is original music based on south american rhythms like chacarera, zamba, tango, vidala, milonga, huayno and candombe. Mr. Santillan received the prestigious “Meet the Composer/Van Lier Fellowship Award” in 2004, the  Louis Armstrong Jazz Award, and the Kunstgegen Foundation 2007 Music for Modern Dance Performance Competition Award. He has recorded four CDs with his own compositions: Desde el Norte (2001), Anit Negra (2003), Ñann (2005) and El Bosque de la Memoria (2008).

He has performed in Argentina, Colombia, Finland, Greece, Canada, Spain and in more than fifty cities in the U.S. including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Miami, Dallas and Washington D.C.
