“All-female group Las Migas have been done something similar inside Spanish music, reinvigorating flamenco and reworking traditional songs”.
– Chris Moss, Songlines - 2019
18 years ago, four women joined forces and talents to rebirth themselves as Las Migas, a group that would find its way to the top of the international flamenco musicscene, with a Latin Grammy nomination in 2017 and later winning an Independent Music Award (MIN) for Best Flamenco Album in 2020 and a Latin Grammy for Best Flamenco Album in 2022.
The passional Gypsy voice of Carolina Fernández “La Chispa”, the guitars of Marta Robles and Alicia Grillo and Laura Pacios on the violin together create a modern flamenco accessible to all, with all the aromas of earth, air, fire and water, and messages to the soul that hit like waves of freedom, strength and love. Following an intense tour throughout Europe, the US and Latin America, this warrior quartet launched their boldest and emotional album, LIBRES, reaching across musical barriers to explore far-away flavors including country, pop and urban music, yet always holding tight to their flamenco and Spanish music roots.
“He sound made famous by Camarón de la Isla and Paco de Lucía has long been absorbed by numerous other genres but the likes of multinational Barcelona band Las Migas, as well as singers such as Encarna Anillo and Montse Cortés, are still taking flamenco in new directions while preserving its essential spirit”.
– Trevor Baker, The Guardian - 2012
“I made sure I was well in place for the multinational Barcelonian flamenco band Las Migas. This was definitely one of my highlights of Womex: four beautiful - and extremely talented - women on violin/accordion, two Spanish guitars and cajon/vocals".
