Blue Note Jazz Festival: Buika at The Town Hall
This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.
Voted one of world's "50 Great Voices" by NPR, Buika -- born on the island of MaJorca to African immigrant parents -- has emerged as a true innovator, a must-see artist among jazz aficionados. Her evident African roots and her cosmopolitanism, developed in clubs in Spain and Americanized during a surreal stint in Las Vegas, explain Buika's rare self-possession. But nothing can quite explain her ability to connect, in spite of the fact that she sings nearly exclusively in Spanish -- Buika is simply one of those rare and wonderful "one listen" artists.
Venue Description: Home to live events ranging from world music, jazz, gospel, blues, folk, show tunes, political humor, theatre, dance, the critically acclaimed Broadway by the Year, Garrison Keillor's annual holiday residency, and more. Most recently, The Dalai Lama and President Obama have graced the stage. Located in Times Square/the Theater District.
