Child of attorney father and doctor mother, Jandira Sassingui Neto, better known as Pérola, was born in Huambo on the 28th of April 1983. The singer and songwriter began singing with only 8 years old, for her family and neighbors, having them all delighted with her performances.

At age 9, Pérola and her family moved to Luanda, and with 13 years they travelled again, this time to the capital of the Republic of Namibia, where she studied law at the University of Pretoria of South Africa.

The singer who is also a lawyer, had her first opportunity into the music world participating in the Cocacola Popstar contest, where she had no opportunity to continue due to the fact of not being original from South Africa. But it was this door that closed which made the talented artist gain strength to go further, decided to have a solo career, Pérola recorded her first work "Os meus sentimentos", a title that reflects her longing for Angola.

The song with the earliest highlight of this album was "Break it", music that launched the artist into the spotlight.
