Caamora biography

Clive Nolan and Agnieszka Swita met back in February 2005, when she visited England from her homeland of Poland. After working together for a short while, they formed Caamora, and began preparing for a Rock Opera version of the H Rider Haggard novel, ' She '.

Over the next two years material for the ' She ' project was written and developed. For such a large-scale project, this represented a lot of music and lyrics.

Clive Nolan: "The demo songs were recorded with Agnieszka testing out all of the vocals. This gradually helped to give us an overall picture of the opera."

During this time, the two performers decided to take their music out on tour. The ' She ' project has always been a long-term plan, and they were eager to get out and spread the word. So, during the later part of 2006 Caamora (With Swita singing to Nolan's piano playing) toured Europe to a warm reception. Then they headed out to South America with some very successful gigs in Chile and Argentina.

In October Caamora released an EP to coincide with their tour. 'Closer' featured material from the forthcoming ' She ' album as well as some Nolan back catalogue. The CD was received well, and has led to some positive reviews, and increased interest in the ' She ' project.

2007 began with a vibrant set of concerts in Poland, organised by Metal Mind. Reaction and interest in Caamora was growing with every concert.

Agnieszka Swita: "We never expected such enthusiasm! We hadn't prepared for three encores nearly every night."

Later in the year saw the release of Caamora's second EP, 'Walk on Water', which was their first release with Metal Mind.

After more concerts in South America, Canada, Portugal and the UK, it was time to record the ' She ' album. This began in June 2007, and was completed in December. In the meantime, the live performance was recorded on October 31st in Katowice, Poland - ready for the DVD.

As final mixes were being prepared in the studio, Metal Mind released the third Caamora EP, Embrace as a 'taster' of things to come.

In March 2008 ' She ' was finally released on CD and DVD, to great critical reaction.

After many acoustic performances around the world Nolan and Swita decided to release Journey's End, at Christmas 2008. This double CD featured live performances from many different countries, as well as demos, unreleased material and bonus material.

2009 has also seen Caamora booked for future shows in South America. These will be full theatrical performances of ' She ' and will represent their greatest challenge to date. The first of these will take place in January 2010 in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
