Camilo Lara, known on stage as the Mexican Institute of Sound, never set out with the intention of taking his personal musical career seriously. At first, Lara was simply creating holiday mixes for friends — then those friends convinced him he should take his songs into the studio. At the beginning of MIS, Lara was working days as the president of a major record label while concocting his debut album at night. Thanks to the critical and commercial success of his breakthrough albums Piñata and Soy Sauce, Mexico’s accidental rockstar now tours the world performing at major festivals like Bumbershoot.
