He attended Las Palmitas Elementary School. In , his family moved to New York City looking for a better way of life. When he was fifteen years old he began looking for work in Manhattan. The trio member invited Daniel to join the trio and he accepted.
Santos debuted with them on September 13, ; he sang in various social events and was paid a dollar for every song that he sang. His chores included singing, waiting on tables and on occasions he was the master of ceremonies for which he was paid a salary of thirty dollars.
On one occasion, he was singing "Amor Perdido" Lost Love , without knowing that the composer of the song Pedro Flores was in the audience. Flores liked what he heard and invited Santos to join his group "El Cuarteto Flores" which also included Myrta Silva , and would in the future also include Pedro Ortiz Davila also known by his stage name "Davilita".
Santos recorded "Despedida" My Good-bye , a farewell song written by Flores from the viewpoint of an Army recruit who had to leave behind his girlfriend and his ailing mother, which became a hit. This incident produced two mannerisms that Santos eventually adopted in his singing style: chopped delivery almost syllable by syllable, as suggested by Flores and stretched last vowel in the last verse of each stanza, in almost every song he recorded afterwards. In Maui, he was assigned to a US Army infantry unit which was used to replenish casualties in the Pacific theatre.
Santos would joke that he escaped the "replenishment levies" because of his guitar playing skills. Nevertheless, he was sent to Okinawa towards the end of the war. Two months later he began singing Mexican music and boleros at Greenwich Village. At the moment Cuba was experiencing economic growth and Santos developed an interest in the island.
Upon arriving he experienced success, making presentations in Paseo del Prado , Miramar and Vedado. His first successful single was titled Bigote de Gato, based on an area of Havana named "Luyano", which was infamous for serving as the home for fortune tellers.
Later that year Santos was arrested after becoming involved in a fight where he accidentally injured a woman after trying to defend himself. This was followed by several successful productions with Sonora Matancera. Santos, known for his Puerto Rican independentist preferences, was never in the good graces of the dictator. He made his nationalistic and democratic views well known throughout Latin America.

Santos donated the profits from "Sierra Maestra" to the Cuban Revolution. Return to Puerto Rico[ edit ] He returned to the island later that year and began an international tour on , among the countries visited were Venezuela , Colombia and Mexico.
The tour concluded with a presentation in New York and he is returned to Cuba. Here he was contracted to perform in a theater named "Apolo", where he worked with a band named the "Costa Rica Swing Boys". In , he briefly returned to Cuba. It was during this trip that he confronted Raul Castro and Ernesto "Che" Guevara about the political nature of the Cuban Revolution he had supported. He left Cuba abruptly, never to return, when Castro and Guevara failed to convince him that the Cuban Revolution was "nationalistic".
A self proclaimed "anti-communist", he explained that he had supported the Cuban Revolution because its leadership had assured him that it was not communist. On July 22, he performed in the inauguration ceremony of El Balcon del Pueblo, a building owned by Radio Cristal, which was located at Guayaquil. He continued performing with several music groups.
