5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing 13 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
After noting in a review the beautiful and mysterious 'unnamed voice' who concludes the film A MATADOR'S MISTRESS a reader was kind enough to comment on the review and inform that the 'voice' was that of Concha Buika (Maria Concepcion Balboa Buika), better known as simply Buika. For this listener she is an astonishing discovery. Born in Mallorca of African parents who had moved to Mallorca as political refugees from Equatorial Guinea, she lived among the gypsies and absorbed by Spanish coplas and while `copla' literally means verse, the term has come to describe a heartfelt ballad in the cando flamenco tradition. Hers is a voice that is smoky, dusky, sensuous and extremely musical. She has made several CDs in which she marries this flamenco music with jazz, rumba, and soul. The result? A performer who communicates form the heart like a gypsy but who is in full control of her vocal gifts.

Once charmed by her presence the listener begins to note that her ensemble in performance with her is exceptional. This CD is a fine mix of traditional copla, some fused with more flamenco and jazz, others with rumba and other Afro-Caribbean rhythms. Buika also adds ranchera to her repetoire with a very slow but effective version of the standard "Volver, Volver" and "Mienteme Bien", composed by Buika herself. She is supported by Javier Limon on guitar and Ivan Lewis on piano. The result is an unforgettable experience, especially if this is the first exposure to the sorcery of Buika! Grady Harp, June 11

4.0 out of 5 stars A very passionate latin infused record 9 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Concha Buika is a natural when it comes to singing in her native Spanish tongue. Her fourth record "Nina De Fuego" is her most successful and accomplished to date, including many different Latin influences. Her vocals sound stronger than on previous releases, possibly because all of the songs seem very well arranged and suit her vocals perfectly.

"La Falsa Moneda" is a stylish slice of Latin jazz and is followed by the catchy Flamenco influenced track "Culpa Mia". "Mienteme Bien" is a beautifully sung ballad which has minimal piano arrangements to accentuate the raspy tone in her sultry voice. "La Nina Fuego" is another rythmic ballad, this time with a jazzy saxophone and more Flamenco style accompaniments and "Arboles De Agua" continues with a similar vibe. "La Niebla" has an interesting acapella introduction, and is has a lovely smooth jazz feel. "No Habra Nadie En El Mundo" brings back the appealing Flamenco tinged Latin jazz and has a firey chorus. It is followed by the outstanding "Volver, Volver", another heartfelt and emotional jazz tinged ballad - the highlight of the album for me. "Volveras" is another smooth jazz creation with some pop influences in the melody which create a very soothing effect for the listener. "Mentirosa" is another catchy and rythmic Latin work of art and "Hay En La Luz" is the final jazzy ballad.

With not one single average or mediocre track, this album is of exceptional quality and for those who love Latin influenced music and beautiful singing by a raspy voiced female.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buika - Nina De Fuego 2 July 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love this album! Took me 2-3 plays to really get to like it. She sings with such feeling and even though it is all in Spanish you can understand the words and her different emotions through her wonderful voice.

If you like funky flamenco/jazz/latino type music, you'll love this. She has a very rich voice, and along with the rhythms it's great to listen to.

It is a must buy album. Even if you can't understand Spanish,she has a wonderful voice. It has a contemporary-jazzy sound without losing the traditional Espanic feeling. thanks for readind DaveyT.
