Latin Grammy nominee Buika, Spain’s hottest new singer, is a true revelation in Spanish contemporary music. Through her acclaimed recordings and appearances, she has enthralled audiences on both sides of the Atlantic with her intoxicating blend of flamenco, jazz, soul and Afro-Cuban rhythms. Her album El Último Trago (The Last Drink), a tribute to Mexican icon Chavela Vargas, was recently nominated for two Latin Grammy awards: "Recording of the Year" (for the song "Se Me Hizo Facil") and "Best Traditional Tropical Album." Buika is on the world’s “50 Great Voices” list on NPR. Recently she completed a duet with Seal entitled "You Get Me" for his new CD Seal 6: Commitment, and taped her screen debut for Pedro Almodóvar's upcoming film La Piel Que Habito (The Skin I'm In). She was called "one of the great voices of our times" in The Times (UK).
