Santaolalla was born in El Palomar, Argentina, and grew up during the military junta and period later known as the Dirty War. His professional music career began in 1967, when he co-founded the group Arco Iris, an Argentine band that pioneered the fusion of rock and Latin American folk as part of rock nacional, Argentine rock music. The band adopted the lifestyle of a yoga commune guided by former model Danais “Dana” Winnycka and her partner, musician Ara Tokatlian. The band had a few hits, such as “Mañanas Campestres” (“Country Mornings”), and made inroads into different forms of expression (notably a ballet piece for Oscar Aráiz), but Santaolalla felt constricted by the strict requirements of Dana’s teachings, which prohibited meat, alcohol and drugs. He left the group in 1975.

In 2008, Santaolalla recorded two songs on “All You Need Is Me”, a single by British singer Morrissey. The tracks, “Children In Pieces” and “My Dearest Love” were recorded in Los Angeles with producer Jerry Finn.
