Concha Buika, Singer

Concha Buika (born 1972 in Palma de Mallorca) is a Spanish singer. Her album Niña de Fuego is currently nominated for the Latin Grammy Award for Album of the Year.

Buika's family is originally from Equatorial Guinea. She grew up in Mallorca among gypsies -who imbued in her the traditional "cante" flamenco- as the only person of African descent in her neighborhood. Her music mixes flamenco and coplas with soul and jazz. source

Concha Buika is one of my favorite Spanish singers.

She is so internationally acclaimed that even poets from around the globe write about her.

Recently, I read a poem by a poet who spoke of listening to Buika in the darkness as a consolation for mourning the death of his best female friend.
