Bio

Biography:

Christine Ghezzo is a singer and emerging artist who specializes in various ethnic repertoires. Usually considered a mezzo soprano, she fully exploits her vocal range of 3 octaves. Her voice is often described as “lush, mesmerizing and ethereal”.

Christine sings traditional and ritual songs from Romania, Hungary, Italy, Greece, as well as Ragas and Bhajans of Northern India. She is the apprentice of Pandit Kamal Mishra, who is a Master of Northern Indian Vocal Repertoire and Violin. She has also studied and performed with Lia Lungu, who is a specialist in Romanian folk music. She began performing at the age of seven, and has sung in a multitude of concerts and festivals throughout the United States, Italy, Romania and Hungary.

Christine was born in Queens, NY - the most diverse place in the world, which remains an important source of inspiration in her exploration of world cultures and music. She is the daughter of two musicians who also influence and guide her: Dinu Ghezzo (Composer/Conductor/Pianist) and Marta Ghezzo (Musicologist/Theoritician).

The Music:

Christine Ghezzo's music explores the crossroads of world, classical and folk music. It has a depth and earthiness often associated with world music, the meditative and spiritual quality of ritual music, and the technical and harmonic brilliance of classical music. It is music for the heart, spirit and mind.

The songs come from a variety of sources: folk song collections, popular recordings and oral traditions. Christine then brings them to her father (Dinu Ghezzo) to be (re)composed for voice, piano, instruments & electronics; or she rearranges them for herself in layers of voices and sounds.

Her performances are riveting, moving the audience into a deeply meditative, reflective and uplifted space.
