As a composer/arranger he has produced music for documentary films, theater, recordings and live performances for artists around the world. Recently, argentinean virtuoso guitarist Victor Villadangos, has included guitar studies from Julioâs Book âCinco Estudios Criollosâ in his latest CD âGuitar Music from Argentina vol. IIâ (Naxos). Julio also produced colombian singer Marta Gomezâs âCantos de Agua Dulceâ, âEntre Cada Palabraâ (Chesky Records) and âLa Rondaâ- Women of Latin America, âPaula Ausenteâ- Women of the World (Putumayo Records).

He has recorded and performed with many musicians from Argentina, Boston and New York including Oscar Stagnaro (Paquito DâRivera), Livingston Taylor, Raúl Carnota, Quique Sinesi and Sandra Mihanovich. Mr. Santillán has shared the stage with important artists such as Mercedes Sosa, John Mayer, Pablo Ziegler (Astor Piazzolla), Paquito D'Rivera, Bonnie Raitt, Tania Libertad, Diana Krall and Leon Gieco. He has performed and gave workshops in Argentina, Colombia, Finland, Greece, Canada and in more than fifty cities in the U.S. including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Miami, Dallas and Washington D.C.

Julio A. Santillán has recorded over 30 CDs, including a play-along CD for âThe Latin Bass Bookâ (Sher Music, by Oscar Stagnaro), two albums with the Pablo Ablanedo Octet (Freshsound records), four cds with Marta Gómez (BigSur records /Chesky Records)- one of which was chosen among the best 10 records of 2003 by the Boston Globe- and one by tango diva Katie Viqueira (Freshsound records)- Independent Music Award winner, 2005 best World Music Album.

He has released four cds with his compositions: âDesde el Norteâ, âAnit Negraâ, âÑannâ and âEl Bosque de la Memoriaâ (BigSur Records).

These are some quotes from the media:

"Santillan meld styles from down south into a fresh distinctly jazz sound."
-Time Out New York

"Santillán and company have found a way to weave together startling tapestries of color that splash both surprise and warm feelings everywhere as they move a cultural fusion into the future."
-Boston Herald

"Passion in music is always good; passion shaped by elegant concepts is even better. Argentinean native Julio Santillán leading this trio's compelling blend of classic guitar, argentinean folk and jazz, is even better."
-The Village Voice (New York)

Currently he is a faculty member at Manhattan College.
