Author, composer, interpreter, Cristina Vilallonga expresses herself through different musical genres (song, chamber music, orchestral music, opera) influenced by jazz and tango while showing a great creative freedom. A vital creative impulse which seduces by its capacity to give life to a personal and authentic musical universe.
With her original compositions, carried by a sophisticated and timeless sound, she tells stories with a very personal poetic expression, whether through her songs or her instrumental pieces.
Both singer and composer, for Cristina Vilallonga music is one. Driven by the pleasure of inventing, she chooses to engage in musical adventures without barriers, in order to create her own language.
