Inspiration & begin
Since an early age, Menezes was surrounded by popular music, through both her mother’s love for it and the rich musical tradition of Bahia. She soon began to sing in every possible situation, and in her teens started to perform in the animated “trios elétricos” from Bahia’s Carnival.
