Written by Shirlene Brown | August 21, 2012 | Leave a Comment

Now this is a real treat! Concha Buika, born to parents from Equatorial Guinea, grew up in Mallorca among Spanish Romani people (Gitanos) – they imbued in her the traditional “cante” flamenco.  She was the only person of African descent in her neighborhood.
