Dhaka, Nov 17 (UNB) - Las Migas from Spain made the audience of Dhaka spellbound with their soulful song and fascinating blend of Flamenco and Mediterranean style.
They performed at the Bangladesh Army Stadium in the capital on the final day of ‘Dhaka International Folk Fest’, the pioneering international folk music festival of the subcontinent, in the capital’s Army Stadium.
Response from audience proved that their hour long performance will prevail in the heart of Bangladeshis for a long time.
The Mediterranean music was totally able to vibrate the metro listeners and connect city audiences.
The sound from the soft voice of Bego Salazar, the singer of the band with charming rhythm touched the heart of the folk lovers who gathered to listen to the folk in the stadium.
The stage was the main attraction for the audience during their pleasant performance as the less known rhythmic sound was forcing them to stay with the stage.
The vocalist Bego Salazar expressed his extreme happiness to be a part of this festival during her short speech and excited to share their song with the Bangladeshi audience.
“Really we are very happy to be part of this. It is big festival for folk singers. We hope you will enjoy our emotion, songs and do not hesitate to dance with beat our songs,” she added.
Las Migas is unique among Spanish music groups, a fascinating blend of Flamenco and Mediterranean styles that combines classic and contemporary rhythms.
The four women of Las Migas come from four different cities that span not only geography but also the cultural diversity of Spain: Barcelona, Sevilla, Córdoba and Lérida.
Las Migas was formed in 2004 in Barcelona, Spain. They come with the breeze of the Mediterranean Sea and bring their soul and heart into their music.
Some claim their songs to be Mediterranean or soulful song but labeling their song to a particular genre would be difficult. They play rhythmic songs.
At present Las Migas have Bego Salazar as the vocalist, Marta Robles and Alicia Grillo on guitar, and Roser Loscos on violin.
These four band members have different perspectives towards music and the incorporation their thought to a single thread makes the band unique.
Las Migas perform Flamenco music, giving this beautiful genre a new definition.
The band was nominated for the 18th Latin Grammy Award in the category of ‘Best Flamenco music’ in 2017 for their album ‘Vente Conmigo’.
