Founded by multiple award-winning composer and producer Mario Domm (Torreón Coahuila), Camila was born one day while recording Reyli's first album when Samo (Veracruz) was called in to do the back-ups. When tested, his timbre, power and tuning impressed Mario so much that he invited him to work in a new ensemble where their voices would compliment each other. "I heard Salmo through the speakers and they were booming because of his vocal power," remembers Mario.
The rest of the story would write itself live, backing up compositions for a first album that would go on to win multiple awards, Todo Cambió. Parallel to this and in a curious way, Camila's name would fortunately come up to be filled with meaning, thanks to its alliance to Sony Music and Westwood Talent. As such, with the thought of doing 30 concerts in the Mexican Republic during 2007, Camila did not imagine that the success of its singles Abrázame, Coleccionista de Canciones and Todo Cambió would take them to more than 300 performances over the course of two years. "To arrive at a place where people don't know your face, but they know your songs, is a privilege; as well as playing twice at the Metropolitan and the Auditorio Nacional, to sold out crowds in less than two months," says Mario.
Without a doubt, the formula to this trio is how well they compliment each other: "I admire Mario a lot for his way of writing songs, for his perfectionism when he produces and how attentive he is to everything," explains Pablo. "I think he is a genius. Samo is a virtuoso singer with amazing feeling. Despite not knowing music theory, he has the intuition and the ear that allow him to create incredible harmonies. He is very creative and has a huge vocal range."
Keeping in line with the title of their song, Todo Cambió, life changed for Camila during their inaugural tour. This is how Pablo remembers it: "I went from a sedentary life to seeing myself involved in a tornado of activities and emotions. I traveled more than I had traveled in my entire life. I have learned so much. Now I enjoy this wonderful opportunity to make music with talented people and I have the luxury to live doing what I love most."
