WHO?

The most carefree cobla in Catalonia is Biflats! A cobla (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cobla) created in 2015 in Blanes (Girona) that breaks molds, a hooligan cobla that wants to bring this sound closer to the new generations and export it abroad.

WHAT?

Following the success of his first album ‘Catalan Fanfare!’ (2017), Biflats presented ‘Hummusman!’, A show with 14 crazy musicians on stage and a great dose of theatricality, directed by the prestigious playwright Martí Torras. Now, they are about to present their third work: ‘Fanfarrona!’, Recorded at Soundclub de Salt while the musicians surfed the third and fourth waves.

They each invite you to dance and have a World Music sound in common. It also hides a message of love for the environment and the preservation of natural spaces; such as the claim of river flow in ‘La Rumba del Ter’, the preservation of the coast in ‘Pixapins’ or the protection of the oceans in ‘Looking for or Finding Oil’. And it is that Blanes is the creative epicenter of the Biflats, and the "salted fish" touches them closely, so, apart from some smells of current urban, Balkan or Sephardic, they are more than present! An album where Zinkman, the voice of LaDinamo, or the guitarist Marcel Torres have collaborated.

WHERE?

Having performed at the main festivals in Catalonia, with ‘Fanfarrona!’ It is proposed that the Biflàstica bacchanal be a must-see this year.

After positioning their previous records on lists of World Music stations around the world, they want to continue teaching the particularities of the sound of the cobla 'made in Catalonia', which this year incorporates Catalan rumba, genuine and unique, or the audacity to introduce the tible to the most pop song on the album.
