From 1970, since her brother was no longer present, she began playing
the chords as if there were two guitars. This is the audience
perception at her performances. Some would say: "It’s like
two guitars playing together!"
Grupo Lumiar emerged in 1982. At first,
it was just a group of women playing a repertoire consisting mainly of
Brazilian popular music, with emphasis on instrumental music. Flávia, Vânia Andrade, Isabel Queiroga,
and Ana Áurea were the group’s members. During the
six years that the Lumiar stayed together, until 1988, the group
has performed in several shows such as Espaço Aberto
and Melhores do Ano and did a show in tribute to Elis Regina at
the Casa da Arte in Recife.
During this period, Flávia was also carrying out her own projects,
such as attending a course in harmony at the Seminar of Instrumental Music
in Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais in 1986. She also studied at the Conservatório
Pernambucano de Música and later, she got her degree in music at
the Federal University of Pernambuco. She also took private lessons of
flute and keyboard.
At her return to Recife, she started playing with Lula
Gomes, and together they composed a frevo - "Folia
which got the 3rd place in a music festival called Frevança
