Editorial Reviews

Buika unveils herself on the cover and bears all on her third album,
Niña de Fuego. Buika does away with the costumes that usually
decorate album covers, stripping away all but her feelings.
When she moved to Madrid and recorded her first album, she showed
the never-ending possibility of her skills as a singer. With her second
album,Mi Niña Lola, produced by Javier Limón, she got the
credibility, the recognition, the awards, the performances, and the
exciting reviews that left people breathless.
Her career cannot be summarized in a sentence but when she opens her
mouth you realize there is no singer like her.
Buika now arrives with her third album, Niña de Fuego (Girl
of Fire) again teaming up with producer Javier Limón. On this album,
Buika returns to the Spanish copla, performs for the first time several
ranchera songs, and also some new songs composed by herself and Javier
Limón. The album is full of songs about love and longing affection.
Buika sings of her personal experience in the lyrics that she and Javier
Limón wrote and composed.

All the songs in this flamenco CD are charged with deep emotion, romance and sensuality. The CD is almost addictive. You can keep listening to it and liking it more as you listen to it more. Not knowing any Spanish, I don't understand the lyrics, but these songs do not need a language. They are simply beautiful to listen and enjoy.

Ever since I read a synopsis of her life and music career in the newspaper a year ago, I was intrigued. I went to see her in a small local theater, and since then I was hooked. She mixes African and Spanish rythms with jazz and Latin beats to create an amazing sound. Her voice is captivating and penetrating. She portrays herself through her music.

When reviewed on NPR recently, what I heard was delicious! I pulled over on my commute home just to write this down. Her musicianship is amazing in its invention, phrasing, coloring, and variety of sound and emotion; and the engineering on this album is just a treat! She has that wonderful vocie of the real Flamenco singers from Spain that I was introduced to nearly 30 years ago by a Cuban refugee friend and himself a consummate musician in Miami. (Wil, you would love Buika. Sorry you're not here to hear!) She would make a perfect Carmen, as well perfect for the vocals in El Amor Brujo. Amazing voce, amazing album. I will get more of her work.

I was introduced to Buika at a concert at the Mondavi Center for the Arts in the fall of 2010 and fell in love with her music immediately. She was described as a daughter of political refugees from the African nation of Equatorial Guinea and grew up in a gypsy neighborhood on the Spanish Island of Mallorca. When she stepped up to the microphone I was blown away by her intense, powerful, luminous and smoky vocals. It was obvious that she fully absorbed the culture of her new home and related it in her music. The next day I promptly bought two of her CDs: Nina de Fuego and Mi Nina Lola. I love both of them and plan to buy her other CDs. I'm not a professional music critc. All I can say is that if you love flamenco, jazz, soul and blues, you will love this CD. All of the songs are sung in Spanish. I do not speak Spanish but I can tell you that Buika skillfully conveys the feelings and emotions of the songs so well that I almost feel like I know what she is singing about. I feel it in my core. The musicians are very talented as well and blend perfectly with her vocals. Buika will definitely take you on a wonderful musical journey.

Format: Audio CD
Fiery, soulful, sensual, Concha Buika's new release "Nina de Fuego" (Girl of Fire) has finally crossed the Mediterranean and landed in the United States and is a Latin Grammy nominee for the 2008 Album of the year. Buika is from the island of Majorca (Balearic Islands) whose musical style fuses, Flamenco, Jazz and Salsa. With this new release, Buika's silky voice creates yearnings of love, loss and hope against lush jazz chordal changes that will invoke comparison to Sarah Vaughn and other jazz greats. Although all the songs are in Spanish, the mood and cadences in the music will bring even the biggest die-hard into the fold of Buika and her spell binding music.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 8, 2011
Format: Audio CD
After noting in a review the beautiful and mysterious 'unnamed voice' who concludes the film A MATADOR'S MISTRESS a reader was kind enough to comment on the review and inform that the 'voice' was that of Concha Buika (Maria Concepcion Balboa Buika), better known as simply Buika. For this listener she is an astonishing discovery. Born in Mallorca of African parents who had moved to Mallorca as political refugees from Equatorial Guinea, she lived among the gypsies and absorbed by Spanish coplas and while `copla' literally means verse, the term has come to describe a heartfelt ballad in the cando flamenco tradition. Hers is a voice that is smoky, dusky, sensuous and extremely musical. She has made several CDs in which she marries this flamenco music with jazz, rumba, and soul. The result? A performer who communicates form the heart like a gypsy but who is in full control of her vocal gifts.

Once charmed by her presence the listener begins to note that her ensemble in performance with her is exceptional. This CD is a fine mix of traditional copla, some fused with more flamenco and jazz, others with rumba and other Afro-Caribbean rhythms. Buika also adds ranchera to her repetoire with a very slow but effective version of the standard "Volver, Volver" and "Mienteme Bien", composed by Buika herself. She is supported by Javier Limon on guitar and Ivan Lewis on piano. The result is an unforgettable experience, especially if this is the first exposure to the sorcery of Buika! Grady Harp, June 11

Concha Buika is a superb vocalist who combines Flamenco with Andalusian Copla and Jazz on this fine album, was born in Equatorial Guinea grew up steeped in the Gitano (Gypsy) music in Mallorca (Spain). Her voice has that fine raspy quality characteristic of Flamenco singers.

The excellent accompaniment, the great arrangements combine with her beautifully modulated voice and allows the dramatic, emotional music to express itself fully.

If you are not familiar with this style of music it may take some listening before you come to fully appreciate it's beauty.

In any case if you wish to expand your musical horizons, this album is highly recommended.
