Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in United States

NEW YORK  •  The Town Hall  •  Ongoing

Born on the island of Majorca to African parents in political exile from Equatorial Guinea, Buika is one of today's hottest world music artists. The Spanish singer performs a heady combination of traditional coplas (female-centric torch songs) and fusions of jazz, Gypsy rumba, and Afro-Cuban rhythms. Dubbed the "Flamenco Queen",  Buika has earned a devoted cadre of fans and collaborators ranging from celebrated filmmaker Pedro Almódovar to musicians Seal, Rachelle Ferrell, Anoushka Shankar and Nelly Furtado.

A commanding performer with a husky, crushed-velvet voice, Buika saw her career catch fire in 2009 with El Último Trago, a collaboration with Cuban piano giant Chucho Valdés. And during Chick Corea’s recent monthlong residency at the Blue Note in New York, Buika was featured in his stunning flamenco ensemble.
