Following Buika’s sold-out US debut concert in Miami in 2007, South Florida audiences have been anxiously awaiting the return of Latin music’s most acclaimed new star. Her enchanting voice and overwhelming stage presence left the audience mesmerized. The wait is over for what is the most anticipated show of the year. Buika returns to Miami for one night only on Thursday, July 9th 2009 at the historic Gusman Theater in downtown Miami.
Born to African parents from Equatorial Guinea, Buika grew up in Majorca, Spain, and is now based in Madrid, Spain’s melting pot and most multicultural city. Buika spent much of her childhood in the company of the island’s gypsies, who introduced her to their flamenco repertoire and attitudes. Buika is at the crossroads of many genres, a place where jazz, funk, flamenco, copla and neo-soul come together in a sublime, musical pact.
For tickets call Ticketmaster: (800) 745-3000 or visit the Gusman box office.
