«What a wonderful world! Great to be here!» Christina Zurbruegg

Raised in the Berner Oberland, Christina Zurbruegg 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. Zurbruegg studied and played folk music, shot the documentary film “Orvuse on Oanwe” about Vienna’s last tootlers (tootling is a Viennese version of alpine yodelling) and in doing so rediscovered her own roots. Christina Zurbruegg can look back on 13 music albums. The film “Staying/Leaving” by zurbruegg & hudecek was awarded the “Golden Dragon”, her song album “jetzt” was reviewed as a first class work between tradition and modernity and the film “Halbzeit” was nominated for the “Golden Rose 2009”. Last was her CD “doodle it – yodels from vienna“.
