“Critics, media, and fans alike have realized that Buika defies expectations and confounds conventions. An artist who follows in the tradition of those select performers who have transcended with their voice, charisma, and command of the stage – Nina Simone, Chavela Vargas, and Cesaria Evora are often mentioned – Buika stirs emotions with her vocals, pierces hearts with her lyrics, and enraptures with her presence.”

“She has a husky, layered and imperious voice, something like Nina Simone’s but more flexible and virtuosic.” – The New York Times

“Buika possesses the most haunting voice to be found on either side of the Atlantic.” – The Sunday Times


From The Guardian, “Born in Spain to West African parents, Concha Buika started out on the flamenco scene but branched out to work with two great Cuban pianists, first Chucho Valdés and now Ivan “Melón” Lewis. Her new album, La Noche Más Larga, recorded with Lewis in her new home, Miami, has rightly been praised for its subtle, Cuban-flamenco mix, brave range of songs and slinky, rhythmic vocals.”
