October 20, 2006: this day is the 10th anniversary of the death of Sebastián Santa María. A good reason to finally present PIANOSANTAMARIA.com, the official Sebastián Santa Maria website, to the world of music. In the test version of this website it said, paraphrasing Sebastián's song 'It's About':
SEBASTIÁN SANTA MARíA
24, 1959 - October 20, 1996
... and It's About time someone starts to work on writing the biography of Sebastián Santa María, the Chilean-Swiss music & piano genius who is not very widely known. Some may have heard about him through his time with the English band The Zombies. With them, replacing founding member Rod Argent, he recorded the 1991 album 'Return of The Zombies', that first was released in Germany; later, it came out in the UK as well, with some track changes, as 'New World'.
