"Äs chönnti alls ganz anders sii..."

Refreshing like cold water bubbling from a mountain well: Christina Zurbrügg sings, raps and yodels on her new CD – straight to the heart of her audience. (Concerto)

Paragliding over alpine landscapes.
Clear as ice, like a penguin on a south pole ice-floe, or a Swiss girl yodeling down from the Eiger mountain … it immediately takes to your blood. (Wiener Zeitung)

The most refreshing alpine yodels to be heard for a long while! (oneworld.print)

... from Ethno-Jazz, Rock and Hip-Hop to Folk Hits, brilliantly mastered ... this just has to be eulogized and praised up to the skies. (Folker)
Listen to it again and again … incredibly perfect … varied, clever and charming. (Schallplattenmann)

Zurbrügg impresses us most of all with her voice, her eloquent sense of humor and her brilliant yodeling, that has the power to lend wings to herself (and to her audience)... (FF, Die Südtiroler Wochenzeitung) - Concerto/Wiener Zeitung/oneworld.print/Folker/Schallplattenmann/Südtiroler Wochenzeitung

Raised in the Berner Oberland, Christina Zurbrügg came to Vienna after a long stay in South America and studied acting and classical singing. She became well known through her music theatre productions about the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca. Zurbrügg studied and played folk music, shot the documentary film “Orvuse on Oanwe” about Vienna’s last doodlers (doodling is a Viennese version of alpine yodelling) and and in doing so rediscovered her own roots.

Next was her solo program “Christl’s Wonderworld”. The film “Staying/Leaving” by zurbrügg & hudecek was awarded the “Golden Dragon”, her song album “now” was reviewed as a first class work between tradition and modernity and the film “Half Time” was nominated for the “Golden Rose 2009”. Last was her CD “best of yodel 99-09“ and "change of register".
