<<...Cristina is this smoking violinist – her mindset is current and dynamic. She picks up on different styles and does a lot of research. […]From the first gig to the first album was 10 or 11 months. It’s really coming together now, and with […] Kiseleff we’ve grown into a strong team.>> - Argus (Cape Town) - Evan Milton
