Paulinho Fonseca


About the Artist

He is one of Jota Quest’s founding members, a pop-rock band that gained mainstream popularity in Brazil in 1996, after signing a major deal with Sony Music and releasing its first album.

After 8 CDs and 5 DVDs, the group reached the impressive milestone of more than one million copies sold. One of Paulinho’s main characteristics is his ability to keep the heaviness, the groove, and the punch, always using his drum kit to enrich the band’s songs.

Jota Quest is one of the most renowned bands in the Brazilian pop music scene, performing over 180 concerts every year. The group travels across the country, drawing crowds and driving thousands of people crazy during its live presentations. Paulinho Fonseca is endorsed by Gretsch drums and Zildjian cymbals since 1997.
