Cristalina Scripted and directed by Katherina Tsirakis for the song "Cristalina" from the album "Canções pro efim do mundo" by the singer Tupiniquin. A woman sails into the sea, on the run. On the high seas, she gives up her animal mask, her object of power that symbolizes Intuition. Repentant, she jumps into the sea during a storm to go after her mask. All seems lost when women from the depths of the water emerge to help her in this rescue.

Cristalina (Lyrics)


Oh Cristalina

Tens o dom do amor Dormes menina

Quem te assustou?


Oh Cristalina

Tens o dom do amor Foges menina

Quem te abusou?


Oh Cristalina

Tens o dom do amor Corre menina

Quem matou o amor?


Oh Cristalina

Tens o do amor Dormes menina

Quem te assustou ?

Adorei como a voz de Tupiniquin é naturalmente grave, mas com bom alcance nas notas mais agudas, principalmente nos versos e estrofes de maior entrega. Ouça, também, "Consolação", a segunda do disco, e "Cristalina", que ganhou um clipe que pode ser assistido no player abaixo. Dramático e apoteótico. - Rolling Stone
