“Duduka is a fantastic drummer, he has worked with me and I love the way he plays.”
Antonio Carlos Jobim

“Duduka Da Fonseca has done for Brazilian jazz drumming, what Kenny Clarke had done for jazz drumming in America.”
Dom Salvador

"Duduka Da Fonseca is keeping alive the drum style of the late, great Edison Machado.
Having learnt all the nuances of what we call Samba - Jazz, Duduka has taken that music to a new level becoming a master himself."
Claudio Roditi, New York City, 2000

"Da Fonseca divulges a keen awarness of where Brazilian jazz has been and where it's headed."
Todd Jenkins, Down Beat

“Da Fonseca embodies the pulse of a Brazilian Samba School with a full-set reverie, a percussive wall of sound that seems to come at you from all angles."
Ken Micallef, Modern Drummer Magazine

“Drummer Da Fonseca perhaps the best Brazilian trap drummer of his generation, plays with uncommon mix of finesse and drive.”
Mark Holston, Jazziz

“Duduka Da Fonseca had the flowing beat doing his bidding, making one dance while sitting down. A master of “Brasilient” rhythms, he is equally capable of grooving a jazz 4/4 with his great, loosey-goosey swing.”
Ira Gitler, American jazz historian and journalist

"The Brazilian percussionist Duduka Da Fonseca, a key member of Trio Da Paz, may be the most impressive jazz-besotted Brazilian percussionist since Airto Moreira. He balances tropical rhythms and swing with uncommon ease."
THE NEW YORKER

"Duduka Da Fonseca is one of the very few drummers, or perhaps the only drummer, who has found his own unique voice by combining the two traditions. His command of Brazilian and American rhythms and his ability to integrate them so seamlessly is truly innovative.
With music in mind,
Sincerely, ”
Billy Hart
