Buika – Black Flamenco

concha buika 22Born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, in 1972, Concha Buika is the daughter of two inmigrants from Equatorial Guinea. Her mother taught her to listen to jazz voices, and the ‘cante jondo’ style that sang gipsy people around her neighborhood. Her stunning and heartbreaking voice, between black music and spanish ‘quejío’, is the particular seal that has seduced musicians like Chucho Valdés or Rachelle Ferrell. Her music, that mixes rythms like R&B, electronic, pop, hip hop, and, of course, Copla Flamenca, makes reference with its lyrics to the abandonement and the lost love.
