María Concepción Balboa Buika. The name is as beautiful as her terrific voice. Raw, unorthodox and sensitive. The singer, who originates from Mallorca but has an African background, is a global artist. During her career she has worked with talents from all over the world, and in her style as well, Buika
recognizes virtually no boundaries. She has collaborated with Pat Metheny and Chick Corea, as well as with French legendary chansonnier Charles Aznavour and pop stars like Seal and Nelly Furtado. Her latest album, La Noche Más Larga
(‘The Longest Night’), contains all the ingredients that make her so special. No one but her is able to let go of the rigid rules of Flamenco music. She adopts songs by others in a completely unique way. Buika is also developing into a spectacular songwriter, and the 42-year-old Spanish singer is an energetic and almost hypnotizing podium presence.
