Cristina Branco (born 28 December 1972 in Almeirim, Ribatejo, Portugal) was drawn to jazz and styles of Portuguese music before settling on fado, a choice after being introduced to the music of Amália Rodrigues by her grandfather. Branco then studied the poems from which the major fado lyrics are taken.Photo: ”Cristina Branco” by Oscar Lopez Gonzalez.

A voice that traipses freely through tradition, but that also takes time to flirt elegantly with pop music, to broaden the scope of this Lisbon song form in a highly personal way. But what really sets her apart is not just the deep and sensual timbre that few others can produce, it is her adroitness at instantly transforming into fado any melody she lends her voice to. There is practically no fuse on this emotional explosion, fired unhesitatingly…” Photo: “Ana Moura 1 ” by Adriano Afonso.
