My name is Santino Cara. I was born near Rome in Palestrina, the town where Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, the "Prince of Music", was born in 1525.
I started studying music at the end of the Sixties with the maestro Father Luigi Buttiglieri. From him I learned the most important rules, first the studying the organ, then the polyphony. Consequently to my studies I fell in love with the genius of Johann Sebastian Bach, but at the same time I discovered inside of me a deep interest for baroque music and in particular for great Venetian harpsichord composers.
