Eunice Katunda was born in Rio de Janeiro and began studying piano early in her life, then moved on to studying composition. In her late 20’s, she worked as a concert pianist and was part of the Music Viva ensemble that one of her composition teachers, Hans-Joachim Koellreuter, founded. They then went to Paris to study conducting and several years later, she studied Brazilian folk music. She was a prolific composer, writing pieces for large and small orchestras, choruses, and piano, and taught musicology and composition.
