In advance of Buika’s upcoming performance at the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal on July 4, we had a long and insightful phone conversation with the outspoken Spanish singer.

“I was growing up in a flamenco neighborhood,” Buika says, “and that was the first music I met. Flamenco, jazz, blues. But my mama did something really cool. She was from a tribe, see, she’s not even from a village. She don’t know about differences between music styles. For her, all music was the same and that’s how she taught me. Thanks to her, to me, there’s no difference between styles. Because all the styles talk about the same sh**: love, desperation, hate, surviving, hopes. There’s no difference between a girl crying in China because her boyfriend broke up with her, or a girl crying in the United States because her boyfriend broke up with her. It’s the same tears. It’s not the same language. It’s not the same color. But it’s the same tears; the same feeling. We are different, but we are equal.

“When I was a kid, I was the worst,” she admits. “Everything I do in this world I want to be the best, so if I’m going in the wrong way, I want to be the best going in the wrong way. You know what I’m saying? I was a bug. I didn’t want to go to school. I was always hanging on the streets. So people around me used to tell me constantly: ‘You ain’t got no future. You gonna be a useless person. You’re not gonna find nobody to love you. You gonna find nothing to do in this world. You’re gonna be homeless if you keep on like that. You’re not a smart person. You’re an idiot.’ And I was growing up thinking that I was going to be a useless person.

Querida Tribu!!!

Este viernes, 15 de septiembre se pone a la venta "PARA MÍ" en formato "LP+CD" y "CD" :)

Tras el éxito del anterior álbum de estudio volvemos con un disco más 'Flamenco' pero sin dejar olvidadas las sonoridares de los últimos discos y por supuesto con muchas nuevas.

Un disco que dura 25 minutos, ya que es el tiempo que realmente podemos dedicarnos a nosotros mismos cada día. Este EP va dedicado a vosotros!!!
