Biography

Italian folk singer, composer, comedian and actor, sometimes credited as Tony Santagata or Alfonso Santagata. He debuted as a comedian at the Derby club in Milan, with the show Toni Santagata e il suo cabaret, later also released as an album. In the following years he embraced folk music, both recording some classics of the Apulian tradition and composing songs. In 1973 Santagata won the folk section of Canzonissima with "Lu maritiello"; the song was also his major hit, peaking at sixth place on the Italian hit parade.
