SOUTH PREMIERE OF THE NEW DISC
(following the artistic residency done in Loulé in 2019 as a featured artist)
‘Eva’ is the title of Cristina Branco’s new album. The work is scheduled for March 2020. Current Portuguese music is the base explored in a concept that was worked on in a residence in Loulé (Auditorium of Solar da Música Nova) and in Copenhagen (Denmark) last year.
“Eva is an alter-ego and it is time to give her life. Eva is the portrait of someone in a time of change, the first to confront the Divine Law, to break the rules in order to know more, without fatalism, just because to live you have to be cunning and to survive you have to play. Eva is what I want and now she is you. ”
In this new work Cristina Branco signs the musical production together with her musicians: Bernardo Couto (Portuguese guitar), Bernardo Moreira (double bass) and Luís Figueiredo (piano). The disc features compositions of Portuguese musical talents such as Filipe Sambado, Márcia, Kalaf Epalanga, Francisca Cortesão, Pedro da Silva Martins and Luís José Martins, among others.
