Micheline Cardoso was raised in a musical melting pot in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and from the tender age of six was already influenced by the great samba artists such as Mestre Marçal, Darcy da Mangueira and Dona Ivone Lara. Her influences were further shaped by sharing the same "roof and stage" with musicians of all instruments and styles who lived in the same building. Micheline gained huge notoriety having shared backing vocal gigs with some of the best Brazilian artists in the world including (Tim Maia, Bebeto, Martinho da Vila, Geraldo Azevedo, Zé Ramalho, Elba Ramalho and Nando Reis).
