At the mere age of 17, Christine moved to Milan, Italy, with a full scholarship under her belt and not a word of Italian, to train as an opera singer at the “Conservatorio di Milano G.Verdi” and later the “Teatro della Scala di Milano”, but that wasn’t enough. She wanted to have her own voice that would speak her thoughts and what was in her heart. She was endowed “The Berklee College of Music Achievement Scholarship”
In 2005, she moved to New York City to experiment with world music on a different level. She longed to produce an album that would capture the essence and
energy of her dearly missed South Africa. Enriched by her global chops and the Berklee experience which had pushed her envelope further, she ventured into
putting her dream team together for her debut album, fruit of a deep sense of joy, and a heart-felt appreciation for life.
“Dance Mama!”, a ten track original collection of arrangements infused with syncopated rhythms of traditional jazz and South African influenced horn and powerful vocal arrangements, features the up-and-coming jazz pianist Hiromi, along with the legendary Paul Simon “Graceland”
Christine’s voice of her deeply personal experience and transcontinental life has culminated in her songs and remains a source of profound happiness and gratitude, the sunny disposition that echoes throughout her work. http://www.christinemusic.com
