Christina Rosenvinge Hepworth (born 29 October 1964) is a Spanish singer-songwriter, actress and producer, born to Danish parents, Hans Jørgen Christian Rosenvinge, and Danish/British, mother Daphne Ankerstjerne Hepworth.

A veteran of the music industry with a career spanning more than thirty years[1] she was a member of the Spanish groups Alex y Christina and Christina y Los Subterráneos, which were very popular bands before she started a much more risky solo career. Rosenvinge has spoken about facing sexism within the industry[2] and is a vocal critic of it. Lee Ranaldo, the guitarist of Sonic Youth produced one of her albums right before she moved to New York City in 1999. She recorded three albums in english edited by Smells Like Records before moving back to Spain where she has become a revered artist. She is considered "one of the voices of reference of Spanish music in this first decade of the 21st century."[3] In 2018 she had been honoured with Premio Nacional de las Musicas Actuales.[4]

Rosenvinge tours regularly in Spain, Mexico and South America.[5] It was in a trip to Huacho, Peru that she wrote her song "La Tejedora."[6]
