Cristina Branco is synonymous of sophistication. Within an area of strong conservative and traditionalist roots as is the case of fado, Cristina Branco always presents an alternative based on the deep knowledge of the poets and poems she plays, exquisite composers and excellent musicians who transpose a unique aura live.
With more than 20 years of career and several albums, “Menina” is the title of her most recent work with original themes by authors like Filho da Mãe, André Henriques (Linda Martini), Cachupa Psicadélica, Mário Lagin-ha and António Lobo Antunes. An album of new approaches, of new composers of several latitudes of the Portuguese music.
“Menina” received in 2017 the Best album Award of 2016 by the Portu-guese Society of Authors and Cristina Branco was nominated for the Gold-en Globes in Portugal as Best Individual Interpreter in 2016 for the album “Menina”.
Cristina Branco will shoot her next video in the island of Madeira and dur-ing the Concert of the Estalagem da Ponta do Sol, being accompanied also by some national journalists in this double action. One of the great names of a different fado in a night that has the great support of Madeira Tour-ism.
