“Though compared to Nina Simone, Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf, [Buika] sounds like no one but herself.” —Los Angeles Times
Latin Grammy winner and two-time Grammy nominee, Buika is a critically acclaimed flamenco-fusion vocalist from Spain. The daughter of political refugees from Equatorial Guinea, she is part of a new generation of performers who are combining classic flamenco with jazz, soul and dance rhythms. With a voice that has been described as “sultry,” “sonorous” and “achingly beautiful,” she knows no boundaries when it comes to language or geography and has recorded tracks in English, French, Portuguese, Farsi, Italian and Armenian. Her World Tour 2020 will showcase BUIKA’s all-female band performing a new repertoire of styles that include a deep sound of jazz meets reggae, world music, soul, R&B and funk— all meticulously chosen and flavored with her profound flamenco accent.
