Cristina Branco premiers “Alegria” in France
24th de May - Café de la Danse – Paris – 8:00pm
25th de May – Théâtre du Parc – Andrezieux – 8:00pm
Café de la Danse, in Paris, welcomes «Alegria», Cristina Branco new CD. On the next day, the singer will travel south, to present her new music at Théâtre du Parc, in Andrezieux. In “Alegria” Cristina Branco wanted to get inside the skin of twelve different characters, adapting her individual self to what’s happening in society, using music as both a shield and a weapon, celebrating life’s unsung heroes and heroines and looking for solutions to the troubled times we are living through. These characters are our next-door neighbours, the people we live with in our own homes and in our minds. They are us: twelve characters in whom we see ourselves over and over. To create these characters’ body and soul, Cristina Branco counted on the help of some of her favourite composers and poets: Manuela de Freitas, Gonçalo M. Tavares, Miguel Farias, Jorge Palma, João Paulo Esteves da Silva, Pedro Silva Martins, Mário Laginha, Ricardo J. Dias are responsible for the CD’s original themes of the album which also includes songs by Sérgio Godinho, Chico Buarque and Joni Mitchell.
