NINA PARÁ was born in São Paulo, Brazil.

 

She started her interest in music as a teenager. Wheh she was 15 years old, she began guitar lessons and, by the age of 18, she changed to the drums, after watching a show of Mike Stern Trio, which had the legendary Dennis Chambers on drums. Since then, Nina's focus was totally on drums. At first, her teachers were Jorge Aniello, Ronald Turnbull and later Douglas Las Casas, Aquiles Priester, Christiano Rocha, Stephane Chamberland and Dom Famularo. Nowadays she studies with Cuca Teixeira.

 

Her influences on music are rock, with a particular taste for heavy metal and progressive rock. However, Brazilian music is also part of her universe.

 

The beginning of her professional life was playing in São Paulo rock bands. In 2002 she joined "Barra da Saia" band - composed only of women. During this work, Nina had the opportunity to tour in Brazil, performing concerts at various cities of São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, Paraná and Rondônia.

 

Since then, Nina joined various projects and bands - all very important in their musical growth as Illustria, Kavla, LACME and Punkake. She also had the opportunity to record and release albums with these groups. Another highlight was working with the singer-songwriter Landau.
