Christina Rosenvinge


Born in Madrid in 1964, Christina Rosenvinge has run the gamut of the music scene in our country, from radio format to indie. Of Danish parents, she emerged as an adolescent in projects like Ella y Los Neumáticos, Álex & Christina, and Christina y Los Subterráneos. But her true character was revealed with the first discs made in her own name, initially in English. In the latter half of the 2000s, the decision to write the lyrics of her more mature discs in Spanish made her one of the best writers of Spanish-language pop music, with a broad range of sounds and subjects, from classical myths to sentimental mannerism. Rosenvinge has throughout gathered around her musicians who have collaborated with her discourse, from Nacho Vegas to Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), covering all sorts of genres, from noise to tango, and from bolero to the brightest pop. Her latest album, Un hombre rubio (El Segell del Primavera, 2018), reviews clichés about masculinity, with the odd tribute to her father, a Dane who learnt Spanish from Lorca’s Romancero gitano.
