Like the warm winds that sweep the Spanish coast, world music star vocalist Concha Buika blends the heat of Africa, the soul of Spain, and the lilt of the islands in a style that is all her own. Known as simply “Buika” to her millions of fans around the world, the Grammy nominated singer with the ‘velvet gravel’ voice has been compared to Nina Simone, Chavela Vargas and Cesarea Evora. She mixes Flamenco, Jazz and R&B into her very own style of fusion, singing in Spanish, Catalan, English, French and Portuguese, and has inspired collaboration with such artists as Anoushka Shankar, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, Chucho Valdés, Seal, Nelly Furtado and quite a few more. Don’t miss this international sensation in her Strathmore debut!
This concert will run approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
