Claudio Santaluce

From a very young age, Claudio demonstrated an insatiable passion for all things musical. It wasn’t long before it became apparent that he also had exceptional musical talent.

Claudio’s keen interest in music first surfaced while traveling in Italy at the age of seven. It was there that he encountered the organetto for the first time. Listening intently to his great uncle playing this instrument, Claudio, almost spell-bound, became fascinated not only with the instrument, but with the traditional Italian songs that were being played. Needless to say, it was only a matter of time before he took up the organetto as his instrument of choice, Italian songs his passion.

Despite his love for Canada and all things Canadian, he has a deep interest in promoting Italian culture and has adopted “A Taste of True Italian Tradition” as his trademark. Claudio’s charm and lively entertainment have brought pleasure and joy to audiences of all ages and cultures, especially within the Italian community in Canada. He captivates his audience with a vast repertoire of many of Italy’s most cherished songs, including vibrant taramel 3s and exuberant polkas. He is renowned for his very unique style of combining traditional elements with a modern twist. Not only has he performed in festivals, concerts and other social gatherings in Canada, the United States and Italy, but he has also done numerous radio shows and television appearances.

Claudio has also demonstrated dedication and commitment to volunteering for numerous charities. In addition to performing at senior citizens’ homes, he has also appeared at various fundraising events in support of Autistic Children, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, Caritas, Hockey Association for the Developmentally Challenged, Huntington Disease, CanarJa and many more charities. Claudio takes great pleasure in sharing his talent to help others.

Claudio is also a successful recording artist and has released a total of six albums, each representing different stages of his musical career and demonstrating his growth as an artist.
