El Último Trago is an 2009 album by Concha Buika and Chucho Valdés, produced by Javier Limón.[2]

Overview[edit]

Javier Limón describes the concept of the album as bringing together "Afro-Cuban Jazz idol" Chucho Valdés with "Afro-Flamenco Jazz" singer Buika, working on the ranchera songs originally sung by Costa Rican-Mexican Chavela Vargas.

It features a note written by director Pedro Almodóvar, who had worked repeatedly with Vargas. Almodóvar made a glowing evaluation of the album, with an emphasis on Buika's renditions.
