A star in contemporary world music, jazz, flamenco, and fusion, Buika (María Concepción Balboa Buika) is an acclaimed singer-songwriter, poet, composer, and music producer who sings in multiple languages. Born to African parents in Mallorca, Spain, Buika’s remarkable voice garners comparisons to Nina Simone, Chavela Vargas, and Cesaria Evora. Her music is a powerful blending of jazz, Latin, Afro Beat, funk, soul, R&B, pop, reggae, and more, seasoned with a Flamenco accent.
