by Kátia Moraes

Kátia Moraes is a virtual definition of the passion that is an implicit part of Brazilian music. The Afro-Brazilian "Mistureba" (Brazilian slang that means “hodgepodge”) proves that.

Album Notes
“Moraes, always an irrepressibly effervescent performer...”

It has been an incredible journey since I moved to Los Angeles from Rio de Janeiro. I'm grateful and honored to have composed, recorded, and performed with generous and talented people with whom I've learned so much.

I began my career in Rio de Janeiro in the 1980's singing with the band "O Espírito da Coisa.” In 1990 I moved to LA for a year and started performing with The Rio Thing. Since then, I’ve performed and/or recorded with Sergio Mendes, Airto Moreira, Oscar Castro-Neves, Rita Lee, Elba Ramalho, Sandy and Junior, Banda Cheiro de Amor, and also with George Duke, Latin Grammy nominee Alex Acuña and Justo Almario's Tolú, Grammy nominee "Latin Project," German saxophonist Praful, among others.

Besides lending my voice to films and television for dubbing, I also made part of several local Brazilian bands like Pure Samba, 22-piece Orchestra Feijoada Completa, Samba Society, Bloco Nove, Falso Baiano, The Rio Thing, Midnight Drums, Sol & Mar, Viver Brasil Dance Company, Folk Ballet of Brasil, Badauê, and Man and Machine.

From 1996 to 2009 I composed, performed and released five CDs with Sambaguru band, and "Tribo" was on the Preliminary Nominating Ballot for the Grammy 2009.
“Cabeça”, my first solo EP, produced by sound engineer/producer/composer Lynne Earls (K.D.Lang, Airto Moreira, Flora Purim) appeared in 2013 followed by a video directed by Caesar Lima.

One day, guided by an immense artistic curiosity, I created the “Brazilian Heart, a Celebration” Series. The musical series pays homage to influential Brazilian artists like Elis Regina (2012), Clara Nunes (2013), Maria Bethânia (2014), Noel Rosa (2015), Rita Lee & Beyond (2016), and Tom Jobim Meet American Jazz Divas (2017).

And here I am, sharing Mistureba (Hodgepodge) and Arranhado (Scratched) with you! Enjoy the sounds of my soul!
Peace and Joy!

Some Press Highlights…

“Blessed with a songbird’s voice, a poet’s heart, an educator’s enthusiasm and an entertainer’s vision, Moraes is the complete package.”

“Moraes strutted on stage with the grace and attitude of an Amazon princess...Moraes danced, sang and communicated with her fans for over an hour, delivering an impressive performance.”

“Katia Moraes is a sweet-voiced pixie who radiates a sunny energy, with traces of Brazilian great Elis Regina in Moraes’s singing.”

“Brazilian singer Katia Moraes -- a born afternoon sunshine performer...”

“Katia is an absolute dynamo on stage.”

“Kátia’s voice can be powerful and heartfelt, coy and compelling, expansive or intimate.”

“Moraes, always an irrepressibly effervescent performer...”

"Leapfrogging from straight pagode to funked-out samba to rock, Kátia’s hearty vocal cords dominate...”

"(...) But there ain’t a Brazilian singer in town who is as irresistible as Katia Moraes. Crowds go nuts when she performs. The energy, the charisma, the sheer joy of Brazilian music just fills a space." LA WEEKLY

"One of the Southland’s most consistently fascinating Brazilian artists…"
