About » Syllirama


Amaryllis Santiago aka The Latin Phoenix ®™ is an International GRAMMY & LARAS Artist and former Governor of The Philadelphia Chapter Recording Academy.

Amaryllis is called The Latin Phoenix ®™ because she refuses to give up on her dream of sharing music. Through the good and the bad times, she always manages to rise above adversity through prayer and her strong faith in God.
She has been extremely blessed to have found her second passion in life. With her exciting move to the Illinois state, she is a proud teacher in the 6th grade elementary Dual Language Program.

She has recently invited A.O.P. (Accidently On Purpose) to join her in a collaborative NEW journey of sharing the musical stage with her at different functions.

Thank you Dr. Risé Jones and Steve Johnson for the wonderful connection.

Amaryllis aka The Latin Phoenix ®™ is best known in the music industry for her passion in music, connecting peers, and community. Her genres include Latin Fusion, Soul, Salsa, and a surprising mix of anything in between.

She has had the priviledge of working with notable International and National class acts. Adding to that she has collaborated with many GRAMMY Award, Stellar Awards, Emmy Award winning Producers and musicians.

She is comfortable performing for an intimate venue or large outdoor concerts.

The project, “Deeply Rooted,”
is set to be released in 2017.

This project has been a unique collaboration since 2013, with Raymond Fry. He is the Songwriter for Oracle Records, LTD and Lyricist & Head of A&R of Midas King Productions International, who utilizes the many talents of Songwriters, Composers, and Musicians from London UK, – Sweden – Russia – USA – Italy. Raymond Fry is aligned in a joint venture with Oracle Record Studio Owners- Giampaolo Pasquale and Michel Garruti based in London and Italy.

She has released 3 albums and several singles and EPs, including “Sabor Latino” and “The Next Level.”

The journey hasn’t been easy, and Amaryllis doesn’t take life-lessons and this journey called life for granted, she’s extremely appreciative of the love and support.
