Jacopo Pellegrini is a musician and versatile composer, in terms of genres and styles, thanks to the several artistic experiences he has had over the years.

He started playing percussions on his own, then he started studying under the guidance of Gilson Silveira at CPM and at not for profit organization Mitoka Samba.

The bahia musician and actor Kal Dos Santos, head of the percussions orchestra Mitoka Samba, has been an inspirer for Jacopo. Thanks to him, Jacopo learned a lot about the Brazilian culture and music, which will be a feature of his musical production.

He is artistic director of Mitoka Samba Orchestra and of the group Maracatù Estrela do Boi, founded in 2004.
