New Collaboration with Arturo O’Farrill

Featured Video Play Icon

Commissioned by Spain Arts & Culture and AECID and recorded this Fall in New York City, pianist and founder of the Afro Latin Jazz Alliance Arturo O’Farrill and Cristina performed and recorded this video together (and socially distanced) at Shape Shifter Lab in Brooklyn.

Both “new yorkers” came into the studio with the idea of having a musical conversation, but when Arturo began playing Carla Bley’s composition on the piano, Cristina decided to join him creating this genuine rendition of “Útviklingssang”. Take a look at the video.

#ThisIsNotAMusicBreak is part of the VENTANA – A Window to Spanish Culture program, a program created by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation that aims to promote Spanish creators, institutions, festivals, and cultural industries through digital content to support their internationalization during the current health crisis.
