With her powerful voice, amazing feeling, beautiful smile and sense of humor Buika captivated the public in her first concert in Puerto Rico. Buika is a unique artist that blends in her music a diversity of influences. In her voice and music one might hear the voices of Africa, the phrasing of the Spanish Flamenco, Jazz, Soul and the rhythms and feelings of latin america and the caribbean. The concert setting was simple and intimate, a great artist like Buika doesn't need anymore, just her voice, the masterful piano of Ivan Lewis, Fernado Favier on percussion and Dany Noel on bass.
Most of the music on this concert were from Buika last album El Ultimo Trago with Cuban pianist Chucho Valdes, Soledad, Sombras, Cruz de olvido, En el ultimo trago, Un mundo raro, Luz de luna. A wonderful CD in tribute of Mexican singer Chavela Vargas. The concert also included music from her previous alums, favorites of the public like, Volver Volver, Mentirosa and Nostalgias. After 2 hours full of laughter and good music and a deserved standing ovation, Buika came back to sing Jodida pero contenta and a solo interpretation of Ojos Verdes.
