This review is from: Nina de fuego (Espana) (Audio CD)
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.
