Concha Buika wins Latin Grammy Award for Best Traditional Tropical Album

Afro-Spanish Flamenco/Jazz singer Concha Buika has managed to win her first Latin Grammy Award for her latest album "El Ultimo Trago" (“The Last Drink”). The album is backed by the highly acclaimed Cuban pianist Chucho Valdés.

Buika won the Grammy yesterday in the category "Best Tropical Album." She was also nominated in 2008 for her album "Niña de fuego" in the category of "Album of the Year."

The album, “El Ultimo Trago”, pays homage to Chavela Vargas on her 90th anniversary, covering the repertoire that she has built during her entire career. Vargas is a Costa Rican born singer, who is especially known for her rendition of Mexican rancheras.
