Carolina Fernández: Vocal
Powerful vocals, dancing violin lines, sensual choreography, and upbeat rhythms of the guitar, Las Migas quartet creates a fascinating blend of flamenco and Mediterranean styles of music from Spain
The four women of Las Migas come from four different cities that span not only the geography of Spain but also its cultural diversity. They all came to the group with one common passion: flamenco. You can hear it in the rhythms of the guitarists, the fluttering violin lines, and the raw power of the vocals. Carolina La Chispa is also a gifted dancer.
Then the group started to evolve. Latin rhythms gave the music a happier, more upbeat sound. And a sensitive side began to emerge in beautiful ballads as Carolina expanded her emotional range, the violin lines grew more pensive, and the guitar arrangements turned more complex and intertwined. The dance also became more interpretive and free-flowing. The new Las Migas style was established, and has thrived.
From the beginning, the Barcelona-based quartet has filled big theaters and performed in some of the most important world-music festivals. Their new music is more luminous, with a strong Latin touch. Their style on stage, from their clothing and makeup to their staging, reflects a richness that enhances the impact of the music.
Las Migas is formed by Carolina La Chispa (vocals), Marta Robles (guitar), Alicia Grillo (guitar) and Laura Pacios (violin).
