In Your Hands & Un Mondo Raro (2016)

Traveling extensively through Latin America, Cammarata started to take an interest in Mexican culture and in the traditional song La Llorona, his rendition of which would become a permanent fixture in his concerts since 2009, and which he would record for the EP In Your Hands.[10]

Together with friend and fellow Italian singer-songwriter Dimartino, he would pay homage to one of the most famous Mexican artists, Chavela Vargas, in an album (Un Mondo Raro) which features some of the late singer's songs translated into Italian,[11] as well as in a novel based on her life (Un mondo raro. Vita e incanto di Chavela Vargas).[12]

In 2016 he collaborated with British artist Piers Faccini, on the album I Dreamed An Island, co-writing part of the song Anima, in Sicilian language.

Of Shadows (2017)

Cammarata's fifth album is 2017's Of Shadows, his most intimate, with the single Long Shadows counting 1.7 million streams on Spotify, as to January 2020.

On July 15, 2008, during Damien Rice's concert in Zafferana Etnea, Cammarata was invited to sing a song in Sicilian language by Rosa Balistreri, Mi Votu E Mi Rivotu.[14]

Lights (2019)

As a theme counterpart to Of Shadows, in March 2019 Cammarata released Lights, a more orchestrated work, also produced by Dani Castelar.[15] Between 2017 and 2019 Cammarata has toured Europe with many international acts such as Villagers, The Paper Kites and Meg Mac.
