    Very few bands on the music market have such remarkable virtues as those of Las Migas. These four women have been conquering the national and international stages for more than eighteen years, until establishing themselves as a benchmark of the most feminine, brave and joyful Flamenco. 

    With a Latin Grammy nomination and a MIN Awards as the Best Flamenco Album for their latest album "Cuatro",Las Migas are one of the most magical and consolidated international Flamenco bands. 

    After a very intense World Tour throughout Europe, the United States and Latin America, Las Migas are back 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. 

    Their awesome renewed voices and fresh sounds, accompanied by the seductive Flamenco-dance of Carolinala "Chispa", do nothing but to invite us to join them in their amazing Fiesta!
