MY STORY

Dear Public,  

I thank you for taking the trouble to browse into my website and hope that you will enjoy the extracts of  my albums .

Best wishes,

Michael Saltino             

 

My musical career started when I was still a child, and for most of my life I lived on a farm near Leandra, Mpumalanga, South Africa. After many years of persevering and getting nowhere in the music industry I became very frustrated and decided to take decisive action to promote my music. We blocked the sewerage pipeline in Leandra to attract media attention-----and years later I inserted an advert in a national newspaper, telling the whole country not to pay for their TV licence------and after both these high profile events took place I was still getting nowhere with my music. Some of my earlier musical struggles may be seen on youtube, by clicking onto “The Michael Saltino Story” (duration=24 minutes,also available on DVD).

The main TURNING POINT in my life came on the 26th November 2007 when I survived a 5th armed robbery on the farm and was shot 3 times from point blank range. I believe that the only reason why I did not die was that G-d still had a purpose for me on this earth.

Thereafter I settled down in Edenvale (near Johannesburg), and started going back to my religion, which I had rebelled against while still a child------back to the local Synagogue. I started learning to read Hebrew again and fell in love with all the tunes that were sung in the Synagogue.

About 3 years after I had joined the small Synagogue choir we decided to do a CD project, mostly based on the beautiful melodies that were sung in the Synagogue. And the CD "Back to my Roots" is the end result. During the recording we realized that the main voice was sounding much better than it did in the previous recordings and I had learnt to do harmonies.This improvement made us decide to re record (during the 2nd half 2016) the " Another chance to Love "album.

During the 2nd half of 2017 we re-recorded the main voice and harmonies of my  album " Flying Away ". These tracks plus the tracks of the"Another chance to love" album were mainly composed by the late Eduardo Gratino, from Zimbabwe.

I would like to take this opportunity in thanking Costa for the passion and commitment he displayed in all these projects.

My website now consists of 3 final albums,each containing 6 excerpts of 6 songs.In addition,portions of " The Michael Saltino Story " DVD may be viewed as well.

Kindly take the time to browse and  listen............ and enjoy !
