Concha Buika is one of the most romantic singer/songwriters on the planet hence why I am sharing her talents with you Fusionites as one of the most treasured artists in Latin America, on this Valentines Day Week.
Her birth name is in full, Maria de Concepcion Balboa Buika. She was born in Palma de Mallorca in 1972 and her family is actually from the Equatorial Guinea. Growing up she was influenced by the Gitanos around the neighborhood who would play traditional Flamenco music all of the time. This ended up having a huge influence on her life and she decided to become a singer at a very early age.
Her music is a fusion of Flamenco, Coplas, Soul, Rumba, and Jazz. She has taken part in many different productions over the years, collaborating with La Fura dels Baus, and doing music for the Spanish film km.O as well as recently having a cameo and singing in the Oscar Nominated Foreign Film by Pedro Almadovar for this 2012 season En Mi Piel or The Skin I Live In, (starring Antonio Banderas), singing a song called “Por el amor de amar” a hauntingly beautiful track that will make your heart skip even if you don’t speak Spanish. Interestingly enough she has also appeared as a vocalist in a few House Music tracks by Spanish producer David Penn and DJ Chus.
Her album 2nd and 3rd albums Mi Nina Lola and Nina de Fuego garnered her a Latin Grammy Award and a nomination for Album of the Year having been produced and written by such greats as Javier Limon and guitarist Nino Josele. Her rendition of the classic “Volver, Vover” made famous by Vicente Fernandez garnered much an amazing amount of praise. She also collaborated with singer Nelly Furtado on a song called “Fuerte” on Nellys Spanish language album Mi Plan in 2010. She released a best of album in 2009 and her last album named “En mi piel” was released last year.
She describes herself a being not only bisexual but as a three dimensional human being. When you listen to her music you cannot just listen to one song, the pain, the soulfulness, and deep richness to her voice keeps you wanting to listen to more, to learn more, to Feel more. This Valentines week you will not be disappointed falling in love with Concha Buika, so dim the lights, put some rose pedals on the bed, pop that champagne, and put some of her delectable music on, let Buika set the mood for love.
