Buika – Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 8pm
Hailed as the “flamenco queen” by the New York Post, Latin Grammy-nominated artist Concha Buika makes her triumphant return to the US. Creating a fusion with flamenco, jazz, soul, and dance rhythms, Buika has become an international sensation. “Her voice has an intensity and a power that’s hard to define,” says NPR. Buika’s voice is piercingly unique and echoes the rich and passionate influences of her upbringing. The New York Times calls her blend of flamenco, jazz, soul, and blues, “luminous…magnificent…superb!”
