Alexandre has been a professional drummer for 22 years. He lived in Germany from 1994 to 1997 and played in the best jazz clubs. Back in Brazil, he started the Brazilian Duet. He also hosts an editorial section in a drum magazine - Modern Drummer Brazil, and writes on www.drummerszone.com. His debut record, Batepapo, became one of the top ten CDs of 2005 in Smoothjazzandmore.

 

In 2008, he released a DVD about drum soloing and his band was the first Brazilian group to play at the Shanghai International Jazz Festival and later released a DVD of this performance, Live in Shanghai.

 

Alexandre Cunha’s passion for drums inspired his father to create the brand that carries the name of the family, and today, is known as one of the best drums in the world; the Odery Drums.


 

“As soon as I began watching his video, I knew that the Brazilian Drumming Duet was something special. Ramon and Alexandre communicate their love for drums and for Brazilian rhythm and music, clearly and powerfully.” --Chuck Silverman (famous US drummer)

 

“Alexandre Cunha, an endlessly inventive master-drummer, drives this music with a light but forceful touch. Even listeners who are not particularly attracted to so-called world music will be pleasantly surprised.” -- Budd Kopman, All About Jazz
