Cristina Brancos music is described as the meeting point between elegance, innovation and tradition, with the Portuguese fado as the cornerstone. But Branco is controversial among fado purists; she does not play in the traditional fado places and does not carry the traditional characteristics. Cristina Branco paves her own way, inspired by heroines like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald on a par with fadoist Amàlia Rodriguuez.
"Eva" is the title of Cristina Branco's latest album. The work shows that Branco is definitely one of the most important personalities in Portuguese music in recent times. The shows in Europe are multiplied and indicate that the term "fado jazz" only makes more and more sense.
' A fantastic voice that hits you in the heart, sprinkles salt in the wound and makes it good again with healing balm ''. Cristina Branco conveys the deep emotions - Portuguese songs about fate. There is a stroke of grief through the fado music. Still, the music is uplifting, yes you actually become happy! It's part of the fado's special appeal.
We look forward to inviting Cristina Branco back on our stage with a new repertoire on the 11th of September!
