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. It’s a quality that struck the renowned filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, who cast her in The Skin I Live In, and jazz legend Chick Corea, who featured Buika as a special guest during his epic run at the Blue Note in late 2011.

* Ute Lemper sings Pablo Neruda > Song Cycle of Love Poems w/ Steve Millhouse, Tito Castro, Andy Ezrin & John Benthal > Octubre 30, 31 > JOE'S.
Ute Lemper's newest creation is a song cycle to the love poems of Pablo Neruda. This very delicate and beautiful songbook is presented mainly in Spanish, but also has adaptations in French and English. It is a fantastic celebration of this especially sensual poetry by Neruda who had written these poems on the Chilean ISLA NEGRA after years of exile. Neruda had escaped from Chile to Argentina and Europe because of his anti-fascist political and artistic activities and writings. His main poetic creations were written during exile. He collaborated with Picasso on highly political inspired works and received several world peace awards by socialist countries. The love poems are dedicated to his wife Mathilda.
In 1998, when Rodriguez was discovered, alive and well and living in Detroit, the search was over and those two websites were combined into this one central online repository for all information about Rodriguez.
