Santi LatoraSanti (* 1935 in Palermo) is an organist, who plays the Farfisa organ. He graduated in violin at the Alessandro Scarlatti Conservatorio in 1953, before turning his interest to the electric organ. Between 1955 and 1966 he moved to Milano, where he collaborated with various artists including Mina, Franco Franchi and Riccardo Rauchi. In this period he played in many Italian clubs such as the Gallery and the Bounty in Milano, La Villa Romana in Alassio, the Cabala in Roma, but it was at the Hotel Santa Cristiana in Numana that Latora met the president of Farfisa Paolo Settimio Soprani, who proposed the partnership with his own company hiring him as a music consultant and demonstrator. In 1967 Santi Latora left the group in favour of his role in the company, thus becoming one of the official voices in the easy listening of the Farfisa sound.
In 2000, IRMA released the Mo'plen series of lounge compilations, including many of Santi Latora's songs. During his career he has also collaborated with Sergio Endrigo, Pino Presti, Gianni Bedori (alias Johnny Sax), Riccardo Del Turco.
