Today's energy focus is on a womban named Concha Buika .
"Magnificent. Her music is the rare fusion that honours all its sources." - New York Times
Flamenco music has always been around me - I grew up tuning into it (enjoying the classics to the modern). I feel at home with her refreshing energy - I love the strong mix of soul, jazz and raw flamenco that makes her songs so unique... Her-story is an amazing one! I'm hoping this is a chance for many other artists in Spain to break out open and become known - from what is already a growing pool of artists that are fusing the tradional with new.
For London readers, she will be performing "Mi Nina Lola"on Friday 14 March @ Sadler's Wells - part of the flamenco festival 2008.
