Buika Receives
Two Latin Grammy Nominations,
Announces Collaborations
with Oscar-winning filmmaker
Pedro Almodovar
and multi-platinum recording
artist Seal

 

Buika has been nominated for TWO Latin Grammy’s in 2010, the first for Recording of the Year for the song "Se Me Hizo Facil" (click here to see Music Video) and the second for Best Traditional Tropical Album for the CD "El Ultimo Trago".

The Afro-flamenco songstress has caught the attention of filmmaker Pedro Almodovar. The Spanish auteur praises her artistry in the liner notes of her last album El Ultimo Trago, and has cast the 39-year-old in his latest film, La Piel Que Habita, slated to come out in Summer 2011 and starring Antonio Banderas and Marisa Paredes. Buika has two songs on the film's soundtrack - a Brazilian track and the Latin Grammy-nominated "Se Me Hizo Facil".

The singer also lent her voice to Seal's new album, Commitment. The pair collaborated on the single "You Get Me". "The track is in English. It's a beautiful song that Seal wrote," says Buika. "It's about devotion. Imagine someone tells you "you get me", just like the rays of the sun have trapped me. To love someone like that is wonderful. I loved it."
