“LATINA” embodies a journey of self discovery by Cristina Pato & Co. exploring heights and hurdles of the life and migrations of a Latin woman. “’Latina’ is purely and simply the result of years of searching for my own voice and my place as an artist,” says Pato.  In 2004, Jean Bechhofer of the BBC said “Cristina Pato the Galician Bagpipe diva is renowned for her dramatic performances, but what counts is her skill and familiarity with that octopus of an instrument, the gaita.”

Program

LATINA a self-search – a program by Cristina Pato and her Band exploring heights and hurdles of a life and migrations of a Latin woman.  “Latina is purely and simply the result of years of searching for my own voice and my place as an artist. Latina is an identity closely related to my culture, my family and my life. The journey of an artist, finding my space in another place, my way of finding a musical language that honors my roots, my instincts, my education and the beautiful things I have learned from other artists. My personal and musical journey and all the things that changed the path I was supposed to follow and made me create my own way.”  Cristina Pato
