17 May Cristina Branco dazzles Belgium and the Netherlands
As she celebrates 25 years of her career, Cristina Branco continues to dazzle venues across Europe and establishes herself as one of the great ambassadors of Portuguese culture in the world.
2022 has been a prolific year for Cristina Branco. The singer has taken the stories of ‘Eva’, her most recent album, to numerous stages in Portugal and abroad: during the last three weeks, accompanied by the musicians Bernardo Moreira (double-bass), Bernardo Couto (Portuguese guitar) and Luís Figueiredo (piano), Cristina Branco played in 17 cities in Belgium and the Netherlands, on an extensive and widely acclaimed tour.
Cristina’s next concert will happen on May 28th, at the prestigious Jazz Sous Les Pommiers festival (France), where she will perform alongside musicians such as Brad Meldhau, Hamilton de Holanda, among others.
The singer will continue on the road throughout the summer and the second half of 2022, with new dates in Portugal – 15th June at the Musibéria festival, in Serpa – in Germany – Furth (17th Jun), Karlsruhe (18th Jun), Hannover (5th Jul) – in Switzerland – Basel (19th Jun) – and in Italy (Nora Jazz Festival, 11th Aug).

At the beginning of May, Cristina Branco released ‘Amoras numa Tarde de Outono’, a new album in duo with the pianist João Paulo Esteves da Silva which registers, like a photographic document, the work that the duo has been doing on stage in the last 20 years. Its’ 14 songs were performed in their original formation – the piano recital and voice – and can be heard on all digital platforms.
