Born in Bogota, Colombia to a family of musicians, Camilo Velandia grew up with so much music inside that it inevitably had to pour out. With a natural musical talent, Camilo studied piano, violin, and guitar from the age of four. Upon graduating from high school and studying with some of the nation's well known players like Jonathan Kreisberg, Mitch Farber, and others, it wasn't very long until Camilo was playing music professionally four to five nights a week and recording sessions for local artists in South Florida along the side of many grammy winning producers and artists.
Soon after, Camilo was offered the opportunity to work with Three-time Grammy Winner and internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Jon Secada. Camilo toured several countries with Jon and got to play for large audiences in the United States and South America, and Asia. Despite his young age, he was offered the opportunity to join the top selling latin artist in history, Julio Iglesias, in his 40th anniversary world tour. With Julio, Camilo visited over 40 countries in nearly every corner of the world. He performed in stadiums and arenas for audiences of up to 250,000 people.
During his tour with Julio, Camilo had the pleasure of sharing the stage with international artists such as Alexander Kogan, Alexandre Pires, Paula Fernandes, Antonis Remos,Sally Yeh, Liel Kolet, Sherina Munaf, Caroline Campbell, and many more. Camilo continued to tour with Julio several years playing historic venues like Carnegie Hall in NYC, the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Royal Albert Hall in London, and many more. In late 2014, Camilo began touring with latin actor/artist Jencarlos Canela, traveling the US, Canada, and some of Europe.
