At the age of 3 she asked for a harp and her wish fell on responsive soil, Braga’s family appreciated art and music highly. When she was twelve and still longed for a harp, she got an instrument and classical tuition. Soon she was familiar with the sounds of Rio de Janeiro and likewise the sounds of Tom Jobim and Joao Gilberto, Egberto Gismonti or Milton Nascimento. Plenty of this was contained I the compositions of Heitor Villa-Lobos which Cristina played when producer Alysio de Oliveiro discovered her and introduced her to the show “Mulheres” where she could present her idea of the Bossa Nova played on harp. Then it progressed step by step, from the bars of Copacabana to her tuition in Indiana, finally once around the world (showcase with STING) back to the reality of Rio de Janeiro.
