“Duduka Da Fonseca is one of the most exciting, creative drummers on the planet and It’s always a thrill to share the bandstand with him.” – Kenny Barron
Duduka Da Fonseca, a 4-time GRAMMY® Award Nominee drummer, and his Quartet perform ten stimulating pieces on YES!!! their album that blends together Brazilian rhythms with Jazz. The drummer is joined in Quarteto Universal by three like-minded talents: guitarist Chico Pinheiro, pianist Helio Alves and bassist Gili Lopes. These musicians push boundaries while deeply staying in touch with their Brazilian heritage.
Throughout his career, Duduka Da Fonseca has been one of the leaders in performing music that mixed together Jazz with Brazilian rhythms, featuring the most rewarding aspects of both genres.
