Personality of the Week
Cristina Branco

25 May, 1972


Cristina Branco has chosen a different path. She has not sought a naive break with tradition but, in preserving the best of it (just listen to some of the classics she sings), she uses her authentic interpretation to breathe new life into the fado tradition. With her beautiful voice and sensitive rendition, she aims to merge the lyrics with the fado music, to make someone experiencing them hear them as inseparable.
