Borned in Porto Alegre, Realcino Lima Filho or NenÍ, the way he is known, started to take his first sounds of a small plastic “pandeiro” , a toy, stimulated by his parents, bon vivants, and music lovers.
Then the boy started to follow his father in parties, always with his “pandeiro”. After a time, the father decided that the “pandeiro” would not be the boy’s future, and like a good “gaķcho” (people who were born in Rio Grande do Sul), bought him a “acordeom” and directed him to have classes. First he didn‘t really like the instrument, but started to have interest listening to Breno Sauer and Canela, in the radio.
Around his 15 years old, he got in a regional music group, which was used to play in bars, tv shows and also in “american bars”. The group was well organized, and each participant was responsible of a task, intruments, presentation clothes and contacts.When the band was over, NenÍ, who was interested in battery, at the time of sharing got what he wanted.He started to study battery continuously, and after at about 2 years, he left to S„o Paulo followed by a contrabassist and the pianist Cidinho, who now is consolidated in New York.
The dissolution of the group and the late fees of the pension located on Aurora street, decided to follow the guitarrist Almir Stockler, the “Alem„o”, playing piano, in the Black and White night club.NenÍ, who had already studied piano before, but had never presented anywhere.
In the middle of all his presentations in the night club, he knew the pianist AloŪzio Pontes, with who he learned a lot about jazz and piano. It was him also who introduced Hermeto Pascoal to NenÍ. With Airto Moreira gone to United States, the Quarteto Novo’s current batterist at that time, NenÍ candidated himself to the vacant. Hermeto gave him Airto’s percussion bag and a Quarteto’s album. NenÍ went to his room in the pension, and stayed all night long awake, learning how to play the album’s songs, until the day after, in the test.
With all the songs memorized, NenÍ was immediately accepted, joining the historic Quarteto. With the dissolution of the quartet, NenÍ came back to play in the night, and one of the groups he played started to make success, receiving an invitation to play in Japan.
Just before leaving, he met once again Hermeto, who also invited him to join his band. Immediately he called the band’s entrepreneur, and after a long discussion, he convinced him not to take NenÍ to Japan anymore.
