Hailed as the “Flamenco Queen” by the New York Post, Latin Grammy nominated artist Concha Buika makes her triumphant return to the US. Afro-flamenco songstress Buika is the daughter of political refugees from Equatorial Guinea and grew up in a Romani neighborhood on the Spanish island of Mallorca. For Buika, flamenco was an open door, “It’s not just about music, it’s a way of life. It’s about not running away from yourself. Some people sing about what they would like to happen or would like to be, but in the copla and el cante, we confront who we are, with all our fears and all our defects. In the United States there’s also a great tradition like this: it’s called the blues.” 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 unique blend of flamenco, jazz, soul, and blues, “luminous...magnificent...superb!” Media Partner: 89.9 KCRW Event Partner: Amoeba Music $25 - $45 PURCHASE: by calling the Luckman Box Office at 323-343-6600 or
