Mex and the City and photographer Carlos Alvarez Montero present



Camilo Lara, Racial Profiling, Mexico City
His home in La Roma, Mexico City.


We first met Camilo aka the mastermind behind the Instituto Mexicano del Sonido in 2006, we saw him open up for Nouvelle Vague from the VIP section and he later took us plowing through DF like a boss in and out of music venues and club openings. We had been long-time admirers of his I.M.S. “Mejico Majico” album but seeing his infectious energy onstage and witnessing his passion for Latin music ethnography was like entering a whole other realm. The reality is that Camilo lives music. He is president of EMI Mexico and continues to build the I.M.S legacy, recording new albums to large commercial success and spreading his Mexican magic for all the world to hear, feel, and dance to.
