Camilo Blanes Music Career
Camilo Sesto is already a made and right man who aspires to follow his father’s path in music. In fact, his voice is very similar and his style is irremediably reminiscent of his father’s.
Although his voice is very reminiscent of his father’s, his career does not take off. He bows and takes jobs but its impact is far from what you would expect from a descendant of a first music figure.
All music describes him as a Tropical songwriter Camilo Blanes who has written many successful songs for top Latin artists. For José José, Blanes wrote the hits “Si Me Dejas Ahora,” “Donde Vas,” and “Insatiable Amante,” while for Camilo Sesto he provided “El Amor de Mi Vida,” “Melina,” and “Algo de Mi.”
Camilo Sesto Mother (Lourdes Ornella)
Camilo Sesto’s mother is Lourdes Ornella who came into the limelight in 2018 accusing her ex-partner of abuse in the relationship according to a Spanish publication Mujerhoy. The alleged accusations came after 35 years of separation. Lourdes Ornella also alleged that Sesto made her have an abortion when she was 20 years old. In addition to affirming that “Camilo had very bad health habits for him and for everyone”, she left Mexico because he became aggressive with her. In December 2018, Camilo Sesto’s representative denied all the accusations that Lourdes Ornelas made against him.
