AFRO FUNKE’ LIVE Presents

KATIA MORAES & PURE SAMBA

“… And Moraes’ singing, as always, was a virtual definition of the passion that is an implicit part of Brazilian music.” Los Angeles Times

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Katia Moraes has been singing and composing since the 1980’s. After moving to Los Angeles she shared the stage with Sergio Mendes, Oscar Castro-Neves, Airto Moreira, Alex Acuña and Justo Almario, Sambaguru, Praful, George Duke, Viver Brasil Dance Company, among many. She has five CDs recorded in the U.S. with Sambaguru, and recently produced a show celebrating one of the most popular singers in Brasil: Elis Regina. If you missed “Elis, a Celebration,” this is your opportunity to check it out. The night will also feature a slide show with Elis images made by Jorge Vismara.

Her new video “Cabeça” has just been released on March 1st, 2012! Here it is: “Cabeça”on YouTube
