Camila Arriva is an eclectic Argentinean singer based in Berlin. With a repertoire that goes from lyrical to popular, her singing is particularly devoted to Argentinean tango.
As the vocalist of Camila Arriva Grupo, she sings tango – both classic and new – in a band whose purpose is to make people dance. This new project was born in Buenos Aires in 2020 and is ready to hit the European dancefloors.
In a more intimate atmosphere, Camila sings with OVNI Tango accompanied by Federico D’Attellis on guitar. With OVNI she has performed at multiple milongas and festivals, and is currently recording her new CD – the duo’s first album.
The singer has also collaborated with several Argentinean bands. During the summer of 2020 she was invited by the groups Fárrago Tango (Adriano de Vita-Juan Damico) and Cañón (Julio Coviello-Nicolás di Lorenzo), as well as Lucas di Carlo’s trio, to perform at some of the most iconic venues of the Buenos Aires tango scene. During her stay in Argentina she also recorded her second CD – together with Fárrago – and shot a series of musical videos featuring pianist Noelia Sinkunas.
Beyond tango, Camila presents her side as a popular music singer in her first album Canciones que traigo (Songs I carry with me). Launched in various European cities, the record was produced in Berlin in collaboration with renowned Argentinean musicians such as Pablo Woiz, Gabriel Battaglia, Pablo Schwarz, Beltrán González, and Javier Pino.
In addition to her work on stage, Camila is committed to bringing music closer to the general public. With OVNI she has launched musicality workshops in different German cities. Alongside the course Singing Tangos, these classes invite participants to delve deeper into the musical genre of tango. Camila’s extensive experience as a voice teacher and her choir director training are at the core of these workshops’ success.
Camila graduated from the National University of the Arts in Buenos Aires with a degree in Musical Arts and Singing. Previously, she studied at the Conservatory Manuel de Falla in Buenos Aires, and at the Conservatory of Barcelona, continuing music studies that she had started in her hometown Luján. Her education also features vocal coaching and performance lessons with teachers such as Janet Williams, Raúl Giménez, Mónica Phillibert, Elisabeth Canis, Fabiola Masino, César Butera. In her role as a soprano, she has participated in several opera and chamber music productions, performing widely throughout Argentina and Europe.
