Play the Parks - Aline Morales

Tuesday July 16

19 Trinity Square

Aline Morales’ days of being Toronto’s best kept secret are over. Since her arrival to Canada in 2003, Brazilian-born Morales has become well known locally as a dynamic singer, percussionist and bandleader. However, it was her debut solo album that brought national attention to this unique artist. 


Released in 2011, "Flores, Tambores e Amores" has met with widespread critical acclaim and reached #1 on Canada’s Folk/World charts. It has appeared on several Best of 2011 lists and has earned a Juno nomination for Best Album. David Dacks writes in The Grid, “Simply put, Aline Morales’ self-released Flores, Tambores e Amores may be the finest Brazilian album ever produced in Canada.” An ambitious and eclectic record, Flores is rooted in classic Brazilian song styles such as samba, forró, Northeastern folk music and 1960’s Tropicalia. Yet, it inhabits its own unique musical world where traces of Italian film scores, African sounds, avant garde poetry and vintage synths ebb and flow.


Play the Parks is presented by TD Bank, produced by the Downtown Yonge BIA.
