Christina is a Portuguese-Canadian musician who has studied Fado singing and the 12-string Guitarra in Lisbon. Fado songs typically revolve around a feeling called saudade, which translates into “longing” or “yearning”. Fado is closely tied to Christina's background; her grandfather was a Fadista who sang in rural villages along the west coast of Portugal. Christina began studying Fado to honour the traditions of her family and her people.
She has a Bachelors in Music and Theatre from UBC, and has studied and performed jazz and world music for over a decade.
