CRISTINA DONÀ began in the early nineties the long and happy artistic journey that makes her one of the most original voices on the Italian music scene. Cristina contributed to defining a new season of Mediterranean-style rock, winning the acclaim of great figures such as Robert Wyatt, David Byrne and Peter Walsh (former producer of Scott Walker, Peter Gabriel and Simple Minds). First Italian artist to perform at the London Meltdown Festival, Cristina Donà is certainly one of the few Italian artists able to "rival" the great colleagues who, just like her, have reinvented the model of interpreter and author in the field of rock music. Always able to renew herself, Cristina Donà has become the first point of reference, then an inspirational figure for the new generations of Italian musicians.
