'Flamenco queen' Buika

IoS Sounds of 2013: Global pop

However, it's my mind's ear that's thrilling to the very idea of the Spanish jazz/flamenco diva Buika's emotive voice filling London's Union Chapel on 18 April.

I remember her saying, "You're a bit late for lunch, but we've got some roast pork," and in fact, it was this wonderful suckling peri-peri pork with fried potatoes and a stack of bread, which I ate greedily with my fingers. That was the same day I discovered the joys of cold beer, because that's all they had on offer to drink: if I was to choose a last supper, it would definitely involve those two things.
