La Linea Festival (2) – Buika

The outstanding flamenco singer Buika, performing at the Union Chapel in Islington, part of the La Linea Festival, London, UK (18 April 2013). The daughter of political refugees from Equatorial Guinea, Buika grew up in a gypsy neighbourhood in Majorca. Her album El Ultimo Trago won a Latin Grammy Award, her unforgettable, smoky voice featured in the Pedro Almodovar film The Skin I Live In, and she has recorded duets with the Portuguese fado star Mariza. This was her first headline London show since 2008.

Wow, these are really good pictures, Rudolf. I more or less feel the music, and the energy. The last is my favorite.

Very much enjoyed Buika on the CD she made a year or two ago. Live, she must be sensational. Great pictures, Rudolf.
