Biography

Dudu Tucci was born in Sao Paulo in 1955. He was born into a musical family and started drumming as a young boy in the Umbanda ceremonies. After leaving school he studied percussion, flute and musicology. From 1976 he travelled extensively throughout Latin America where he discovered diverse ethnic music traditions with a profound spirituality that has influenced him ever since.

Celebrated as an outstanding percussionist, in recent years he has performed at a variety of international festivals, including the 1993 Korean EXPO in Taejon with the Korean Percussion group Samul Nori, in 1994 in Taiwan and at the “Perc Pan” percussion festival in Salvador de Bahia where he performed alongside musicians such as Nana Vasconcelos, Terry Bozio, Glen Velez and Los Papines an in 2000 at the Hannover EXPO.

As a much sought after percussion teacher he continues to inspire the many thousands of students who take part in his courses such as Conga Total, Samba Fever, and the professional training project “Roots of Brazil”. In Germany alone there are over 130 samba groups, most of which have been substantially influenced by Dudu Tucci´s samba workshops . On the bases of his success as a teacher and his intensive method of working he has also been invited to many international workshops such as the “Mozarteum” symposium in Salzburg.
