It is easy to find originality in Duda Lucena. His music has truth, combining rhythms and textures to shape a new style of song. With rich melodies and harmonies, he creates an atmosphere of romance and sincerity. At the same time, Lucena reveals his playful and modern style showcasing the best qualities of Brazilian music.

As a child, Duda Lucena spent nearly every afternoon in the back of Santa Isabel Theatre (Recife, Brazil) listening to the Pernambuco Symphonic Orchestra. These musical experiences helped to inspire Lucena, at the age of twelve, to compose his first songs. He studied classical guitar at the distinguished Music Conservatory of Pernambuco and received musical training in Rio de Janeiro at CIGAM, a school based upon the Berklee College of Music.

As a professional musician, Lucena has performed in the best theaters throughout Brazil. He has also played to large audiences in venues and clubs in Mexico, the Caroli- nas and California. Since this time, Lucena has been influenced by and peformed with musicians internationally.

Duda’s CD, Duda Lucena Quartet Live (2011), spent over 4 weeks on the Jazzweek Radio Airplay Charts, 3 Weeks on CMJ Top 40 Jazz Charts and 3 weeks on the CMJ

N Alternative (Latin) Charts, including placement on the syndicated Jazz Works programing and placement on XM/Sirus and in retail outlets across the nation proving that Duda Lucena Quartet has lasting appeal to listeners globally and made a chart topping impact.
