What's a Cobla?

The cobla is a musical ensemble, mainly comprising wind instruments, which is native to Catalonia and has a sound that makes it unique. It has a wide and diverse repertoire, although it is popularly identified with sardana music.

A cobla is made up of 11 musicians who play 12 instruments. They are arranged in two rows. The first row is seated and includes the flabiol, a kind of flute, and the tamborí, a small drum, two tibles and two tenores, both double-reeded instruments related to the oboe. On the second row, where the musicians play standing up, are the brass instruments: two trumpets, a trombone and two fiscorns, which are similar to flugel horns. Finally, there is a 3 stringed double bass located at the end of the two rows. This is the only stringed instrument in the group. To know more about click here. (Source: Ajuntament de Barcelona)



La Principal de Tarragona i Formiga & Cigale: originalitat, dramatisme i extravagància

(08/11/2019 de Catalunya Ràdio)

Aquest diumenge, 10 de novembre, el Convent de les Arts d'Alcover acollirà la presentació d'un nou projecte musical de fusió entre cobla i un grup musical. Es tracta de la unió entre La Principal de Tarragona i Formiga and Cigale. La proposta sorgeix de l'esperit experimental del grup Formiga and Cigale, formació atípica, duet d'arpa celta i violí, que agafa l'arrel i la interpreta i reinterpreta de la manera més original imaginable.
