~ All compositions and arrangements by Luiz Santos


Luiz Santos was born in the USA and grew up in a musical household. Both of his brazilian parents were passionate for music and inspired in Luiz a love for different rhythms. When he started playing drums at the age of 9, Luiz demonstrated talent well beyond his years.
While living in Rio De Janeiro, at age of 13, he started playing professionally with older musicians exploring various musical styles. Having developed his own capacity for variety, Luiz started performing with Eduardo Duzek all over Brazil, performing and recording television series for ‘Globo Network playing drums and piano.

Then Luiz Santos played with ‘Hermeto Pascoal Group’ with Jovino Santos, Carlos Malta, Itibere Zwarg and Marcio Bahia.

However, Luiz was not content just performing. His growing passion for music propelled him to
become self taught instrumentalist and composer using piano, drums and percussion.
Luiz started composing and arranging full orchestral pieces, combining typical Jazz sounds with Classical and Brazilian percussion and creating unique flavors of music. He also wrote compositions for everything from Jazz to Contemporary Classical, Modern Music to String Quartets.

Luiz did tours in Europe several times when he was invited to play with 'Brazil Fusion' in Zurich, Switzerland, creating a new style that is active till this very day. From there, he performed throughout Europe, lending his talents to a number of musical projects and bands in Germany, France, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, Greece, Luxemburg and Italy.

Luiz Santos played in several European Venues like Hamburg Fabrik, Quasimodo Berlin, Atlantis Basel, Mannheimer Feuerwache, Nefertitti Goteborg, Unterfahrt Munchen, Birdland, Hamburg Fabrik and so many more.

Luiz is residing in NYC. Expanding his creativity beyond limits.
