Around the Globe

Below, you will catch a glimpse of how Christel’s music has been profoundly influenced by the diverse places she has lived around the world.

“Journeys, like artists, are born and not made. A thousand differing circumstances contribute to them, few of them willed or determined by the will – whatever we may think. They flower spontaneously out of the demands of our natures – and the best of them lead us not only outwards in space, but inwards as well. Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection….”

— Lawrence Durrell
