Sarah Linhares Biography:

Sarah Linhares began her love affair with music at an early age through singing in her church choir. Since then, her musical inspiration has been shaped by an obsession with electronic music, membership in a multitude of gospel choirs, and performing and dancing to Afro-Brazilian Samba. This Portuguese-Irish Montrealer has a passion for expressing herself through music and dance, whether she's writing, recording, mixing vocals in her 'closet' studio or taking her place on stage, she always brings it. In 2006 she released Pura Vida on PTR after an extensive artist residency in Venezuela and was then selected to the 2007 Red Bull Music Academy. At RBMA she worked in the studio with Om'mas Keith from SA-RA and was encouraged to keep singing by Ethiopian Jazz master Mulatu Astatke. The entire experience initiated the creation of MFTF. In 2009 she released her first solo EP on PTR as a preview to her upcoming full-length and was featured on Japan's Cosmopolyphonic comp with mfp in 2010.
