MEXICO CITY – The trio Camila urged the media, as well as other Mexican artists, to promote all of Mexico’s positive aspects in an effort to overcome the violent images of the country that are constantly broadcast abroad.
The trio is using its latest music video, “De mi,” to showcase the natural wonders of Mexico’s Riviera Maya, a popular tourist destination in the Caribbean state of Quintana Roo.
The video features a backdrop of Mayan ruins, sinkholes, caverns, mangroves and long stretches of coastline.
“It’s our most ambitious video to date,” the group’s producer and leader, Mario Domm, said during the audiovisual work’s debut on Wednesday in Mexico City.
“We wanted to show an alternative stage of Camila, much more orchestral, more ethnic and folkloric,” the musician said.
The group denied recent rumors that they planned to break up and assured fans that they still had a lot to accomplish as a trio.
“The three of us are here, happier than ever, to deny it completely,” Domm said, referring to the rumors.
“We’re going to continue creating music out of conviction, because that’s what we’re passionate about and because we feel that there’s a kind of magic when the three of us play together,” guitarist Pablo Hurtado said.
The group’s current world tour ends in mid-2012 and they plan to release a DVD of performances in Colombia, Spain, Brazil, Venezuela and the United States, among other countries.
Camila has been performing for seven years and has had a string of international hits, including “Abrazame,” “Coleccionista de canciones,” “Mientes,” “Solo para ti” and “Alejate de mi.” EFE
