Cesar has been around art his entire life. His father is a visual artist and his mother is an English teacher. He has always had a love for drawing, but he has known since freshman year in high school that his passion was singing and writing songs. His inspiration comes from great music and he takes down notes, almost like writing poetry. After his high school graduation, Cesar decided to unleash his musical talent.
Santalo credits the city of Miami for much of his inspiration and he continues to give back through his musical contributions and the non-profit he formed to help needy children use art and see Miami as a place full of creativity and hope.
