Violinist Aline Homzy’s étoile magique takes ears on a melodic journey through switchback trails lined with jazz, folk, and classical elements. Aline is joined in eccentric compositions by four of Toronto’s most in-demand jazz, improv, and creative music collaborators in vibraphonist Michael Davidson (Joe Chambers), Marito Marques (Ivan Lins) drums, Dan Fortin (Bernice) bass, and Thom Gill (Knower) guitar.

Their debut album, éclipse, has garnered critical acclaim and launched them on a Canadian national tour (2023) which saw them perform a dozen shows from coast to coast ending with a win of the Stingray Rising Star award at the Halifax Jazz Festival.
With the release of their debut album éclipse (Elastic Recordings), critical acclaim poured in, praising the album's depth, creativity, and unique fusion of sounds:
“Violinist Aline Homzy, who is originally from Montréal, performs music on Éclipse that will certainly keep one guessing… The blend between violin and vibes by itself would be enough of a reason to recommend this album, but there is often so much of interest going on that it will take time to fully savor its beauty and originality. ★★★★1/2” – Scott Yanow, for Downbeat Magazine
