Critics, media, and fans alike have realized that Buika defies expectations and confounds conventions. An artist who follows in the tradition of those select performers who have transcended with their voice, charisma, and command of the stage - Nina Simone, Chavela Vargas, and Cesaria Evora are often mentioned - Buika stirs emotions with her vocals, pierces hearts with her lyrics, and enraptures with her presence.
“She has a husky, layered and imperious voice, something like Nina Simone's but more flexible and virtuosic.” - The New York Times
“Buika possesses the most haunting voice to be found on either side of the Atlantic.” - The Sunday Times
