Diogo Filipe Quintino Alexandre is a Portuguese drummer born in 1998. He is especially known for his distinct, bold drumming style, whose voice rarely goes unnoticed, regardless of the musical context, perhaps a reflection of his need to outdo himself and to push music and improvisation forward to ever higher levels. JazzLogical discribed him: "Alexandre is already a singular drummer, transmits his own dramaturgy, and he is as well a composer to point out." He has won various national music prizes, including “Best Performer” (2015 and 2017) and “Best Ensemble” (2015) at the São Luiz Jazz Fest in Lisbon plus “Prémio Jovens Músicos 2019 RTP, Antena 2” (Young Musicians Competition 2019) wich is the one of the biggest Portuguese competitions for jazz and classical young musicians. He as recorded as sideman several albuns such as Javier Subatin “Autotelic” (2018) and “Variaciones” (2019), Desidério Lázaro “Homegrown” (2019), Gonçalo Sousa “Nova Construção” (2019), Zé Cruz “USSEGUNDU” (2019) and Samuel Gapp “Trio with Strings quartet” (2019, Bernardo Sassetti’s composition prize winner). Also, he has performed at several international Festivals such has Copenhagen Jazz, Cortona Jazz Fest (Italy), Sudtirol Jazz Fest (Italy) and Festival d’Aix en Provence (South France).
