Grammy-nominated for Best World Music Album in 2018, and named as one of the world’s “50 Great Voices” (NPR), Spanish singer BUIKA captivates audiences from all over the world, regardless of any language barrier. Her genre-transcending music is heavily influenced by flamenco, imbuing her singing with a raw and powerfully emotive sound.

Latin Grammy winner, two-time Grammy nominee, singer-songwriter-producer, and composer — that’s Buika. Hailing from Spain’s Balearic Islands, Buika’s voice knows no boundaries when it comes to language or geography, she has recorded tracks in English, French, Portuguese, Farsi, Italian, and Armenian.
Buika will grace Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts with her sensual, soulful voice that is revered as “the voice of freedom” by NPR All Things Considered in their roundup of “50 Great Voices.”
Buika World Tour 2019 will showcase Buika’s new female band, new repertoire of many musical styles — deep sound of jazz meets: reggae, world music, soul, R&B, and funk amongst others — all meticulously chosen and flavored with her profound flamenco accent.
Buika’s brand new image, band, repertoire, and intense performance — from the beginning until the very end — will reach every fiery heart! Her new album will be released in the upcoming season.
