"Duduka is a fantastic drummer, he has worked with me and I love the way he plays.”
Antonio Carlos Jobim
“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
"Da Fonseca divulges a keen awareness of where Brazilian jazz has been and where it's headed."
Todd Jenkins, Down Beat
