Janaina Neves Pereira Lima, singer, composer, ballerina, choreographer and acrobat, started her career very early. Her interest in dance started when she was four years old and she participated in all the college presentations. Throughout her teens she studied in various schools and various styles from Jazz, Classic Ballet, Gymnastics and Modern Dance.

In 1996 Janaina moved to New York to improve her dance techniques completing courses at the Broadway Dance Center and at the Step on Broadway. Only fifteen days after her arrival she completed a test as a dancer on the video clip "Betcha by Golly Wow" by Prince. Janaina was accepted and danced with Ballerinas from Italy, France and Mexico.

When she returned to Brazil she entered in the Cia de Dança de Diadema (Diadema Dance Company) as Art Educator, mixing dance classes with community care. It was in these classes that Janaina discovered her singing talent. From there she studied performance, voice and corporal percussion. Her first performance was in the Municipal Theatre of São Paulo entitled "Arte de Raiz", directed by Ivonice Satice.

After these series of performances she entered in the Quasar Cia de Dança (Quasar Dance Company) and participated in festivals in Portugal, U.S.A. and Germany.

At the end of 2001 she met DJ and Producer Ramilson Maia and began to sing for him on his Live P.A. project, Ram Science. The link between the two consolidated and in the middle of 2002 the band Kaleidoscópio was born at which moment Janaina turned full time to the profession of Singer and Songwriter.
