The following description comes from the event organizer.

Las Migas began their career in 2004 when Marta Robles, Silvia Perez Cruz (until 2011) and Isabelle Laudenbach (until 2013), all of them students from the Escola Superior de Musica de Catalunya, decided to form a band and were very soon joined by Lisa Bause (until 2013). They had only just begun when they were already rewarded with the Instituto de Juventud (INJUVE) best Flamenco band award, which meant a qualitative leap forward in their career, leading them to play at different events such as the Tarantos, the Mercat de Musica Viva de Vic, the Flamenco Festival of Ciutat Vella, la Pedrera, and to tour several festivals in Italy, Holland, Hungary, Bulgaria, France and Tunisia. 

They participated in the recording of the album La Marato 2007 of TV3 (the Catalan television) and in the composition of the original soundtrack of the theatre play Unes veus, directed by Marta Angelat. 

In 2010, their first own album entitled Reinas del matute was finally launched with Raul Refree as their producer and the collaboration of musicians such as Raul Rodriguez and Javier Colina. The success of the album will lead the group to start a long tour around Spain and Europe. 

At the end of July 2011, it was announced that Silvia Perez Cruz was leaving the group to focus on her own projects. Her last concert with the band took place at the Teatre Grec in Barcelona, after which Las Migas presented their new singer Alba Carmona, who had already worked doing choirs on the album Reinas del matute and who brought some fresh air and a somehow more flamenco style to the band. 

At the beginning of 2012, the second album of the group titled Nosotras somos, recorded in the Manitu studios and produced by Raul Rodriguez, was released, initiating a tour around Catalonia, southern Spain and Madrid. 

On February the 21st 2013, coinciding with the performance of Las Migas at the D’Cajón Festival in Barcelona, the group announced the departure of Lisa Bause, a member of Las Migas since its inception in 2004, revealing that Roser Loscos would be the new violinist. In December 2013, the Breton Isabelle Laudenbach also said goodbye to her collaboration with Las Migas and the Cordovan guitarist Alicia Grillo took over. At the beginning of 2014, they premiered the tour of Nosotras somos, with themes from the former album with new arrangements and some songs selected from their next one. 

In November 2016, they presented Vente conmigo, produced by Josemi Carmona, this being the first album where Marta Robles, the guitarist Alicia Grillo, the violinist Roser Loscos and the singer Alba Carmona worked together. Most of the songs are their own compositions, many by Marta Robles, and with the collaboration of Miguel Poveda, featured as guest vocalist in one of them. It was with this album that they were nominated for the Latin Grammy Awards 2017 as the best Flamenco album. 

In 2018, Alba Carmona has been replaced by Bego Salazar as the band’s new voice. With Bego Salazar they recorded a new album, titled ‘Cuatro’, the fourth of their musical career since this band began to travel the world, 15 years ago. With this album they have wanted to pay tribute to all those who were once ‘Migas’, those who are ‘Migas’ today and those who will be one day, with the most beloved songs from their previous albums and couple of unreleased songs. In 2019 they announced an amazing tour through some of the most important stages in Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Uruguay, Central Europe and of course, Spain and the singer Carolina Fernández 'La Chispa' joined the group. ‘Cuatro’ received in 2020 an Award for Independent Music (MIN) for the Best Flamenco Album.

Las Migas are back in 2022 stronger than ever to broadcast their new album "LIBRES". It is their most luminous, joyful and daring work. Produced by Marta Robles, who is making her debut in this new assignment; it shows the most heartbreaking side of love and life, a tribute to women’s strength, nature and freedom. Songs with nods to new styles such as country, American pop and urban music, always based on the Flamenco and Spanish music that have always characterized Las Migas and conferred their unmistakable uniqueness. ‘Libres’ has a nomination for Best Flamenco Album in the Latin Grammy’s 2022 Awards.

On Sale Friday, January 5, 2024 at 10 am.
