From August 7 to September 15 Cristina is immersed in the pilot course she co-created named “Memory: An Interdisciplinary Exploration” with professors Ken Kosik (Neuroscience) and Kim Yasuda (Arts), at the University of California, Santa Barbara. This course introduces students to the cross-disciplinary field of memory studies and demonstrate how different disciplines approach common questions. Its approach is motivated by Cristina and the musical composition and story that her mother’s dementia inspired, the seminal My Lethe Story, and the power of interdisciplinary education through the arts. This course is possible thanks to the generosity of Jody and John Arnhold.

And if your are in the US, here are the dates for her upcoming US Fall Tour:

Last Thursday July 13th, Cristina joined forces with Galician Hip Hop singer Wöyza for a very special performance at the renowned Galician winery Martin Códax, in Cambados. The repertoire was a surprising journey from folk and World Music to Hip Hop and Soul, and even experimental music. The two artists were joined by the choir V-Go Negro Son Coro for beautiful renditions of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah and Andres Do Barro’s O Tren.
