Pianist and composer Eduardo Puperi was born in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, on 25 October 1969.

From 1986 to 1991 he studied music at CLAM, a school directed by Zimbo Trio in São Paulo, with teachers Fernando Corrêa and Conrado Paulino. He graduated in composition and directing in 1993 from FAAM (University of Music and Arts Alcântara Machado).

In 1994 he formed the “Ludi & Tiné Quartet” with guitarrist Paulo Tiné, a Brazilian instrumental group that lasted until 1999 and released an album called “Vento Leste” in 1997.

He was musical director at Cultura Inglesa in São Paulo from 1996 to 2000, where he directed the musicals “Guys and Dolls”, “Bye Bye Birdie”, “Hair”, “All that Jazz” and “Fame”, respectively.

He directed the big bands “FAAM Jazz Band” (1991 to 1993), ”Orquestralha” (2001 to 2003) and “Swinging Sounds” (1997 to 2004).

In 2001 he formed a Brazilian popular music group called “Aura Tropical”, releasing a CD at the same name in 2003. In 2004 two songs from this CD were released in Italy as part of the “Aruanã” CD, a project from the ”Amigos da Orquestra do Mundo”.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
