Born and raised in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Aline Morales began her performing career as a child training in capoeira, and by the time she reached her 20's, she had performed in a variety of traditional and modern bands including one of Brazil's most well-known maracatu groups, Nacao Estrela Brilhante do Recife led by Mestre Walter de Franca.
Moving to Canada in 2004, Aline Morales immediately became one of the leading figures in Toronto's growing drumming and percussion circles. She co-founded the group Maracatu Nunca Antes, and performed with percussion groups such as Rick Lazar's Samba Squad and Ritesh Das' Toronto Tabla Ensemble amongst others. Known at first primarily as a percussionist, Morales gradually became one of the most in demand singers of bossa nova, samba and forró styles.
The next stage in her career, the solo CD entitled "Flores, Tambores e Amores", is an ambitious showcase for Aline's versatility and creativity as both singer and composer. Rooted in Brazilian styles of samba, forró, Northeastern folk music and tropicalia, "Flores, Tambores e Amores" is nonetheless musique sans frontieres, where traces of Italian film scores, african sounds, avant garde poetry and vintage synths ebb and flow throughout. Expertly guided by producer David Arcus, "Flores Tambores Amores" has a kaleidoscopic feel and eccentric attitude, propelled by Aline Morlales soulful voice and melodies that transcend all language barriers.
