Concha Buika (born 1972 in Palma de Mallorca) is a Spanish singer.

Buika's family is originally from Equatorial Guinea and she grew up among gypsy people. Her music mixes flamenco with soul, jazz and funk.

During the 1990s she took part in different productions, such as Ombra by La Fura dels Baus or the soundtrack for the Spanish movie km.O. At the same time she composed several songs such as "Ritmo para vocé", "Up to the Sky" and "Loving You".

From November 2000 to March 2001 she sang at The Luxor, Harrah's and Gold Coast casinos in Las Vegas. She also performed as a guest singer in the Blue Note festival in the same city together with Rachelle Ferrell.

Concha is a singer who handles many musical styles (jazz, bolero, flamenco, funk). She is one of the most lively and spontaneous artists in the current Spanish musical scene. Asked to define herself, she said, "Yo soy bisexual, trifásica y tridimensional." The mother of a young son, she was once part of a bisexual ménage à trois.
