The unique singer and lyricist Kátia Moraes began her career in Rio de Janeiro in the 80's with her energetic band "O Espirito da Coisa". Since then she has performed and/or recorded with top Brazilian acts like Sergio Mendes and Airto Moreira, as well as with Latin Grammy nominee Alex Acuña, Justo Almario's Tolú, and Dutch acid jazz band Praful. She released her first U.S. CD Ten Feet and the Sun in 1996 with the Brasil Nuts, followed in 1999 with Ginga with Sambaguru, and the 2003 album Live by Kufala Records. In 2009 Sambaguru released Tribo. Kátia is currently singing with Sambaguru, Pure Samba, Brazilian Hearts, and for the Viver Brasil Dance Company.
