Buika at San Francisco Jazz Festival at Herbst Theatre

4 I might go!

Add to Calendar 2012-11-16 2012-11-16 35 Buika at San Francisco Jazz Festival at Herbst Theatre Only a unique confluence of cultural influences could produce an artist as strikingly original as Buika, who has earned a devoted cadre of fans and collaborators ranging from celebrated filmmaker Pedro Almódovar to musicians Seal, Rachelle Ferrell, Anoushka Shankar and Nelly Furtado. Born in Spain to parents in political exile from Equatorial Guinea, she grew up on the Spanish island of Mallorca. She was exposed to great jazz singers by her mother and forged a breathtaking, souldrenched vocal style combining traditional Spanish coplas with the Gypsy laments of flamenco and jazz improvisation. A commanding performer with a husky, crushed-velvet voice, Buika saw her career catch fire in 2009 with El Último Trago, a collaboration with Cuban piano giant Chucho Valdés. And during Chick Corea’s recent monthlong residency at the Blue Note in New York, Buika was featured in his stunning flamenco ensemble. Don’t miss one of the world’s most exciting young talents. This date marks the SFJAZZ debut of an important new figure in world music.
