DESPITE the adverse weather conditions caused by Storm Gloria, the celebrations for Sant Sebastià continued, filling every corner of Palma de Mallorca, Spain with music and performance on Sunday evening (January 19).
In Plaça de la Reina, the musical quartet of Las Migas took centre stage, enthralling crowds with their signature electronic mix of traditional flamenco music. The Latin Grammy nominees performed songs from their new album ‘FOUR’, where their vocals were harmonised with guitars and violins.
