Of Puerto-Rican parents, born into Spanish Harlem in the ’50s, a young and inquisitive Fantuzzi discovered the joy of dancing, singing and performance, using this as a means to escape the New York city streets. Leaving New York at the age of 16, he hitch-hiked around the United States for three years before heading to England, Europe and beyond.
Pursuing a journey of ecstatic exploration and a mission to share joy, love & delight in life with others wherever and whenever he can, Fantuzzi has been a part of many musical and spiritual consciousness festivals for years, including Burning Man, BhaktiFest (Joshua Tree, CA), Earthdance (global), Bali Spirit Fest, Into The Wild/Wildheart (UK), Glastonbury (UK), and Harmony Festivals (USA). He was at the first Woodstock festival and his iconic photograph was used by Newsweek magazine as their front cover to symbolize the essence of the sixties generation.
