Christine Valença release a new video for ‘PARA NÃO TOCAR (NA RÁDIO)’
Rio de Janeiro’s singer, composer, musician, actress, and dancer Christine Valença was raised in a musical family, but she decided to launch her artistic career in theater. Her best performance as an actor came in 2019 when she played Judy Garland in the musical “A Star Is Born.” She started to consider releasing her own indie pop-focused tracks around this period. She draws inspiration from a wide variety of artists, including Norah Jones, Françoise Hardy, Fiona Apple, Edu Lobo, and Djavan. The artist is getting ready to release her debut album in 2022. She wants to make a dramatic and vivid sound by fusing vintage textures with contemporary pop aesthetics.
The music glides smoothly over a seductive groove energized by 70s funk. In stark contrast to the soundtrack’s levity, the lyrics hit hard at a point that plagues much of the artistic class: the imposition of musical and aesthetic standards by the entertainment industry. “I have been suggested to change my musical style and even my appearance to fit certain market parameters, fit in with a fashion trend or meet some other superficial requirement. This song is a protest against this dictatorship and its modus operandi, which puts commercial interests ahead of artistic integrity,” says Christine.
