Formiga and Cigale met in 2010 in Brussels. With its origins in France and Catalonia, this Belgium-based duo is powered by a Celtic harp and a violin. Its sound is an exploration of the modern elements of folk music while still keeping its core essence. Their vocals are distinctive, with an overlapping style which blends seamlessly together. The audience never knows where one begins and the other ends. In their surprising way, this two-piece band delights the crowds with their unique live performances.

The group’s first EP was released in October 2012. In June 2016 Formiga and Cigale released their LP, a CD recorded at Studio Igloo (Brussels). The work includes new pieces from around the world as well as own compositions. The work was nominated at Catalan Music Awards - Premis Enderrock 2017 in the categories of Best Folk Album 2016 and Best Folk Song 2016.

Formiga and Cigale are regularly embarking on tours through France, Catalonia and Scotland. They also collaborate in different musical projects.
