Aline Homzy is an award-winning violinist and composer. Praised as one of Canada’s finest jazz violinists, she has performed and/or recorded with Danilo Pérez, Munir Hossn, and The Weather Station. Her music has been performed by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Swedish guitarist Mikko Hilden, and South-Korean bassist Yongwon Cho. Homzy is also a community builder, with a focus on highlighting women instrumentalists and improvisers. She was the recipient of a 2018 TD Discovery Projects Award that saw her curate a sold-out concert featuring female improvisers at the Canadian Music Centre. During the pandemic, she produced the documentary Sounds of Davenport, which aimed to showcase musicians in her community through a beautifully captured video concert, supported by her political representatives. Homzy has performed at the TD International Toronto Jazz Festival, Festival international de Jazz de Montréal, Stockholm International Jazz Festival, and Daigu – South Korea – International Jazz Festival. She was a finalist for the 2022 Toronto Emerging Jazz Artist Award and was awarded a distinguished fellowship to attend the prestigious Hambidge Artist Residency in Georgia, USA, also in 2022. Her debut album Éclipse (supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and FACTOR), features her group Aline’s étoile magique and will be released in the summer of 2023, coinciding with a 2023 Canadian jazz festival tour.
Joining Aline are Michael Davidson on vibes, Thom Gill on guitar, Dan Fortin on bass, and Marito Marques on drums.
