Dudu Tucci (full name: Eduardo Tucci da Silva; born May 5, 1955 in São Paulo) is a Brazilian percussionist, singer and composer.

Dudu Tucci grew up in a family with a musical background, and was already playing drums at very young age at umbanda-ceremonies. He studied classical percussion, flute and musicology at Brooklin Paulista Conservatory in São Paulo. After that he traveled throughout South-America to study Latin American music.

In 1978, he was invited to play in the symphonic orchestra in his home town. At the same time he met the well-known Brazilian dancer Ismael Ivo and both opened the "Experimental Black Dance Group". After a cooperation with Arrigo Barnabé, Tucci was invited to the JazzFest Berlin, and has been living in Berlin since then.
