Belgium, Holland, Denmark, and Norway are the next stops. Cristina Branco starts this Thursday with a 3-week tour of 15 European cities. A new album is promised for autumn and the first official presentation date has just been revealed: November 30th at Casa da Música, Porto.
Cristina Branco welcomes spring with an extensive tour of Northern Europe. Starting today, April 20th, Cristina will tour 13 stages across Belgium and Holland over the next 3 weeks (see box below). On the 10th of May, she will travel to Denmark to perform at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, and on the 12th she will leave for Oslo, Norway, to perform in front of the Cosmopolite audience. The return to Scandinavia is already planned for September.
Bernardo Couto on the Portuguese guitar, Luís Figueiredo on the piano, and Bernardo Moreira on the double bass are the usual partners on stage who will accompany Cristina throughout this journey.
This tour will also be a unique opportunity for Cristina Branco’s fans to hear live some of the most emblematic songs from her fruitful career and, most likely, some new ones, since the quartet has recently been in the studio.
With a career spanning 26 years, 17 albums released, and numerous concerts around the world, Cristina Branco is an indefatigable ambassador of Portuguese culture. Her last work ‘Eva‘ (2020)-Honorable Mention of the José Afonso Prize 2021-closes the trilogy started with ‘Menina‘ (2016) and ‘Branco‘ (2018). In 2022, Cristina Branco toured Europe in more than 50 concerts. She released the ‘document‘ (as she affectionately calls it), ‘Blackberries in an Autumn Afternoon’, the result of her long collaboration with pianist João Paulo Esteves da Silva. This album is their first and only vinyl release to date.
For autumn, the release of a new album is scheduled, whose first official presentation concert is now revealed. Cristina Branco will take the stage at Sala Suggia at Casa da Música, in Porto, on the 30th of November. Tickets are now on sale at the usual places. More details about this new work will be released soon.
