Let's vibrate to a flamenco tune with "Vete que te quiero" by Buika (Music video)

December 4, 2019 | By Aodren

Concha Buika is one of the most influential artists in the Spanish-speaking world, with a career spanning more than 13 years, more than 600,000 albums sold, and above all a style and voice all her own, which she has forged and strengthened over the course of an almost incredible life.

This daughter of an Equato-Guinean couple who fled the murderous madness of Francisco Macías Nguema's regime, grew up in the slums of Palma de Mallorca, in the Spanish archipelago of the Balearic Islands; in a neighbourhood populated by refugees, prostitutes, and drug addicts, and even by drug-addicted refugee prostitutes, gypsies, and anti-Franco poets hidden among the gypsies. Then after Palma, there was London, with dreams of music, but especially the galley and odd jobs, saving up to buy his first guitar, simulating orgasms on the phone for a paid service, or cleaning offices. And then after London, again Palma, and the small concerts, right or left, adaptation of African songs from his childhood or classical jazz and soul.

It's all these galleys, the Equato-Guinean bubi tradition, flamenco, a great talent, his mother's records, flamenco, Edith Piaf, Africa and flamenco again that we find in Buika's music, It is this urgency to live, this sensitive tremor on the brink of the abyss of life that the singer, who is, according to her, neither Spanish, nor gypsy, nor gadji, transcribes with her powerful and feverish voice to each of her songs.
And it is this magic that Buika distils again and again in each of her concerts, in each of her songs, as on her latest single to date, "Vete Que Te Quiero", whose video clip has just been released. From the very first notes of this new track, we are taken in by Buika's voice and the flamenco claps, the Arab-Andalusian habibi and the Spanish mi corazon, the screeching of the basses and the dreamy flights of the piano, Buika's voice again and again, and this heady whirlwind of love, we are taken in by "Vete Que Te Quiero"!
