Christine Vaindirlis


Born in London and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa under the most horrific and diabolic era of apartheid, intolerant of the political injustice, Christine searched for the first opportunity to pursue her passion for music and take her to new horizons. At the mere age of 17, Christine first moved to Milan, Italy, to train as an opera singer and was then endowed with the Berklee College of Music scholarship to study composition, arranging, orchestration, and production for a live and studio audience as well as performance as a voice principle.
In 2005, she moved to New York City where she produced “Dance Mama!”, a ten track original collection of arrangements infused with syncopated rhythms of South African and traditional jazz,  with three of the tracks hitting the finals, semi-finals and quarter-finals of the USA, International (ISC) and UK Songwriting Competitions respectively, while the album received airplay in the US, Europe and South Africa, and on the in-flight World Music play-lists on Continental, Copa, Sri Lankan, Caribbean and United Airlines. 
Christine has since been featured on CNN International, NBC’s New York Non-Stop, ESPN and Time Out New York, and has had the privilege of performing at many prestigious music venues world wide, among which the Blue Note in New York City. She was also featured as one of the official judges of "In the mix" talent show competition on LifezoneTV this past August. Christine’s voice of her deeply personal experience and transcontinental life has culminated in her songs and remains a source of profound happiness and gratitude, the sunny disposition that echoes throughout her work.
