Cristina del Valle (born 1 August 1962) is a Spanish singer and activist.

Cristina del Valle was born in Oviedo, Asturias, Spain.

In 1980, she went to Madrid to study criminology and since 1978, she has worked in several social action groups, NGOs (Ayora, Solidarios, Apram, and others) and left-wing political parties which worked in support of human rights, for the Sahrawi people or against domestic violence.

As a singer, she started with the band Vodebil, but she released her first solo-album in 1989, Cris. In 1991, after meeting her sentimental partner Alberto Comesaña, the couple decided to launch the musical duo Amistades Peligrosas, which grew to great success. The group split in 1996, but returned in 2003 with the album La larga espera. She has also collaborated in several musical projects like Tatuaje, where she played María de la O. Hevia was as well her sentimental partner.
