Flowers, mustaches, flags, hearts, and so on… Camilo was received with presents, applause, and ovations at the Quinta Vergara on his first visit to Chile to finish the Via del Mar International Song Festival on Friday (Feb. 24). And they all belted out hits like “Kesi,” “Pegao,” and “ndigo” at the top of their lungs.
The Colombian singer-songwriter, clad in white slacks and a tank top and barefoot, had the 15,000 spectators dance and leap in the central seaside district of Valparaso, revealing once more why he has captured a growing “tribe” of international supporters. The audience awarded him with two Gaviotas (festival prizes), one gold and one silver.
“Good evening Viña. Good evening Chile. Good evening, tribe,” Camilo said shortly after opening his show. “I have been dreaming of this moment for many years. Since I was little, I saw my favorite concerts by my favorite artists from my house [in Colombia] here, in Viña del Mar”.
Camilo performed more than 15 songs, including “Favorito,” “Tutu,” and “Vida de Rico,” accompanied by his band. His wife, singer and actress Evaluna Montaner, performed alongside him on “Por Primera Vez” and “Macchu Pichu,” and then returned to finish the performance with them on “ndigo.”
Camilo began the second part of his De Adentro Pa Afuera Tour in Argentina before landing in Via. The tour resumes on March 1-2 at Santiago’s Movistar Arena and will take him to Paraguay, Peru, Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Mexico until the end of May.
