Lucena studied classical guitar and received musical training from the distinguished Conservatorio Pernambucano de Musica. He held his first concert at Museu da Cidade do Recife. Next, he performed at the Teatro do Parque and Valdemar de Oliveira Theatre. Seeking more musical knowledge, he moved to Rio de Janeiro, studying harmony, arrangement, and composition at Centro Ian Guest de Aperfeicoamento Musical, a music school based upon the Berklee College of Music.
On tour in Mexico, he fell in love with his wife who introduced him to her hometown, Charleston, SC. After more than ten years in the South, Lucena is recognized as a pivotal force of Brazilian music on the jazz scene.
Lately, Lucena has been featured with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, Charleston Jazz Orchestra, Live 5 WCSC’s Bounce around Charleston, ABC’s Lowcountry Live, XM Sirius’ Real Jazz Show, and performing at events such as the Charlotte Jazz Festival, Los Cabos Jazz Festival (Mexico), and at venues across the country.
