A native of Mexico, Santiago Díaz began playing guitar at the age of 13 at the National School of Music in Mexico City and made his first public recital two years later at the Sala Huehuecóyotl. Acclaimed for his lyrical and passionate performances, Mr. Díaz is one of the leading virtuoso guitarists of his generation and is an active concert guitarist in both Mexico and the United States. The Boston Globe wrote "He’s a really spectacular player. The combination of his technique and his passionate performance is really not to be missed"..."A player with flair, lyricism, and technical finesse". According to the guitar figure Joaquín Clerch "Santiago is a young virtuoso who possesses a secure technique, a beautiful sound and an imaginative and sincere musicality". Moreover, legendary guitarist Eliot Fisk said, "He is an extraordinary young virtuoso with a solid technique, unique artistic interpretation and superb musicality". In addition, renowned guitarist David Leisner said, "He is blessed with a strong, perfectly natural musical instinct and with an impressive technical facility on the guitar".
