Cristobal is the musical alias of singer-songwriter and visual artist Christophe Katrib. Christophe was born in France in 1976 growing up in Jeddah and Beirut. A self-taught musician, he started playing the guitar and writing songs and poetry in the early nineties but very irregularly throughout the years. It wasn't until recent years that he started making public his own indie folk songs, first through a Myspace music page in 2007, and later through performances and recordings in Lebanon. In December 2008 he was invited to Radio Liban for an interview and a live studio performance. He was also selected in 96.2FM's music contest and recorded "Over song" for the resulting compilation album in February 2009. The live radio recording of his song "As I walk" was also selected for Ziad Nawfal's "Ruptured Sessions vol.1" CD (April 2009). On stage, Cristobal is either alone with his acoustic guitar, or joined by musician friends (cello, indian percussions, double-bass, electric guitar, flute...).
Cristobal has performed in Lebanon in bars and clubs (Walimat Wardeh, Bar Louie, The Basement, EMchill, Art Lounge, Snatch) and Festivals (Fete de le musique, L.A.U Theater Festival). In February 2011, he was invited to perform at the Italian Cultural Center in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).
