Cristina Tovar

Born in Seville, she began her studies there in the professional Conservatory of Dance. Her training led her in 2006 to appear in María Pagés’ show “Sevilla” in the Maestranza Theatre of Seville.

In 2008 she decided to train in flamenco singing in the Cristina Heeren Foundation, taking classes with outstanding singers, such as José de la Tomasa and Arcángel. In the following year she joined Salvador Távora’s Company with the show “Carmen”, touring the best stages in Spain.

Of note are her numerous recitals in flamenco clubs, such as La Fragua, El Cerro del Águila, and Torres Macarena. At the same time, she has participated in flamenco festivals, such as those in Carmona, Estepa, and the “Noche Larga de los Museos” in the Museum of Arts and Customs, and has collaborated on recordings produced by the guitarist Pedro Sierra.

On the other hand, she has participated in the series “Flamenco Viene del Sur”: Women born for flamenco, which was organized by The Andalusian Flamenco Institute, and in “miércoles a compás”, a series which was exhibited in the Andalusian Center of Contemporary art in the Monasterio de la Cartuja (Sevilla).

Among the prizes she has received, standing out is her first prize in the “Jóvenes Flamencos” competition from the “federación provincial de entidades flamencas”, and the first prize in Group III of Cantes Bajo Andaluces in the Festival de las Minas.
