Bio

Originally from Belo Horizonte Brazil, Aline Morales distinguished herself as an exceptional singer, instrumentalist, and dancer before transplanting her talents to Canada in 2002.

The Aline Morales Band is this versatile musician’s most innovative project and combines her diverse influences, including rootsy traditional folk styles (forro, coco, afoxe) with a taste of samba, reggae and dub grooves. In the short time since its inception, the Aline Morales Band has made a splash on the Toronto music scene, earning featured spots at festivals such as the Art of Jazz and Ritmo Y Color and opening for international acts such as Sergio Mendes. In December of 2008, Aline was voted one of the 2009 “Artists to watch” by Exclaim magazine and the band’s much-anticipated debut album is scheduled for 2009 release.
