SPAC on Stage Series: BUIKA
“SPAC on Stage” features a unique seating arrangement that transforms the SPAC amphitheater into an intimate concert experience, where the entire audience is placed onstage with the artists, looking out into the theater. The series takes place once per month – June 19, July 23, August 26 and September 9 – and showcases ensembles whose artistry crosses through classical, contemporary and global music genres. All performances begin at 8 p.m.
Named “the voice of freedom” by NPR music radio, BUIKA and her all female group will bring a variety of musical influences, from African highlife “Soukous / Makossa” to jazz, flamenco, pop, R&B, soul and folk to her “SPAC on Stage” performance. BUIKA, the daughter of Equatoguinean parents of the Bubi tribe, is one of the largest and most international fusion artists that the country of Spain has had in the last decade.
The singer, composer, and producer is also a two-time Grammy® nominee, the latest in the ‘Best World music album of the year’ category, a Latin Grammy winner, and a Latin Grammy nominee.
Tickets to “SPAC on Stage” will be $50 or $40, depending on location.
