Cristina Quesada has been showing off the ukulele on stage in Elefant parties and online for a long time now, giving us little advances of her music and making us fall in love with her singular charm. That’s exactly why we were so impatient to see what shape her record-label debut would take.


A music-lover from a very young age, she studied music theory and violin starting at age 7, until at 13 she bought a guitar and began to play versions of her favorite songs. She broadened her artistic horizons, joining theater groups, which has led her to her current participation in a children’s program on television in the Canary Islands called, “El Club De Archi”.


At 15 she discovered the unmistakable sound of the ukulele, which she thoroughly mastered, and which ultimately led her to record her versions. And this is how we got to the 7” that we currently have before us.







The single opens with the well-known “Pineapple Princess”, which pulls on the Hawaiian evocations of the instrument, surrounding her innocent voice and dreamy desires for a perfect love, in that song by the Sherman Brothers, made popular by Annette Funicello.


“Secret Song”, on the other hand, highlights the more intimate and melancholic side of things, among luminous harmonies and a delicate glockenspiel, on the first of her original songs.


“Tonight You Belong To Me” is a version of a North American classic from 1926, written byBilly Rose and Lee David, that maintains all its delicacy and elegance under Cristina’s trembling voice.


On the other side of the single there is a poetic and bare revision of “Viaje A Los Sueños Polares” that shows the marvels of FAMILY’s melodies without additives or flashy touches.


“I Don’t Know” was composed with Paul Bevoir, who was responsible for the arrangements and production of the single from London. He brings just the right details to adorn the songs without stealing the spotlight from Cristina’s voice and her omnipresent ukulele. To wrap things up, we have another version.


This time it’s “Let’s Together”, which was made famous in the original version of that movie called “Parent Trap” and which was also written by the Sherman brothers, who were responsible for so many scores from the Disney factory, like “Mary Poppins”, “The Aristocats”, and “The Jungle Book”. Is it a nod? Is it a declaration of intentions? What we know for sure is that we’re still here, sighing for our beloved Cristina. You captured Pineapple Princess for us.












Releases "You Are The One" [LP / CD]. Cristina Quesada and her delicious voice give us a good handful of extraordinary minutes on this first album, which is a diverse and incredible collection, with a ton of covers and some original songs. The album is lucky enough to include a fantastic collaboration with Javi and Coral from BAND À PART and Luis Elefant. Cristina uses the songs that she has hand-selected by other artists and creates her own world with them, one that is as delicate as her way of singing is. And that is how she gives us this “You Are The One”, which is beyond a shadow of a doubt a huge delight to even the most stubborn music lovers 



CRISTINA QUESADA: Releases “Think I Heard A Rumour”, her second album.

Joe Moore (THE YEARNING, THE PERFECT KISS, Lia Pamina) has written, arranged and produced almost all of the songs on her second album, “Think I Heard A Rumour”. The album brings together Joe’s infinite love of music and Cristina Quesada’s freshness and sweetness, and the result is a collection of songs that need (and deserve) to be carefully and specifically commented on individually.



CRISTINA QUESADA "Primavera" Single Digital and Video

If the collaboration between the velvety voice of Cristina Quesada and the overflowing creativity of Joe Moore (THE YEARNING, THE PERFECT KISS, JULIE ET JOE) has already given us a handful of singles from “Think I Heard A Rumour”, get ready for a feast of what is to come. The tandem is back with an exercise in high-voltage Italo Disco. As an advance for “Dentro Al Tuo Sogno”, their upcoming album, we have a Digital Single full of juicy material, starring one of the songs that will be on the album: “Primavera”.


CRISTINA QUESADA "The Only One" Single Digital and Video


This song evokes the greats of this sound like Katy Gray, SAVAGE and Gazebo, and it is the star of a single that comes with two huge gifts. The first is a previously unreleased track that will not be included on this album, “Love Transmission”, a new exercise where the bass once again carries the lead vocals, with explosive strength that takes us to a meeting point between the sweetness of Rose and the out of this world amazement of Giorgio Moroder and CYBER PEOPLE. Darker and more porous, but just as evocative. And the second is a video by Daniel Cuenca which captures the spirit perfectly: neon lights, sparkling dresses, dancing and night-time. Why not say it – it’s a personal look at the “Flashdance” spirit.




“Think I Heard A Rumour” gave us a collaboration full of magic and chemistry. Joe Moore (THE YEARNING, THE PERFECT KISS, Lia Pamina, JULIE ET JOE) brought the music, and Cristina Quesada brought the inspiration and her sweet, melodic voice. And now, once again, this duo is back to sowing the seeds in prolific fields full of unthinkable hits. And if on that album we found a songbook full of great techno-pop and disco hits with eighties airs, this new work is a total tribute to the Italo Disco sound, that artists like Giorgio Moroder, SAVAGE, HIPNOSIS, Gazebo, ROFO, CYBER PEOPLE, Silver PozzoliRyan Paris and so many others sent out into the world in the seventies and eighties. But what does this mean? It means the dance floor is spilling over, the lights are flashing, the vocoder is smoking and there is an explosion of epic melodies full of nostalgia.
