Born in Buenos Aires, Felipe Devincenzi began studying popular music before turning to classical double bass at the age of sixteen. In 2007, he entered the Manuel de Falla Conservatoire in Buenos Aires where he studied with Edgardo Vizioli. He played regularly in tango ensembles before entering, in 2012, the Higher Institute for the Arts of the Colón Theatre where he studied the double bass with Elian Ortíz Cárdenas and chamber music with the cellist Stanimir Todorov and the pianist Haydée Schvartz. Between 2013 and 2016, he played with the Théâtre Colón Orchestra and acquired considerable experience in both the symphonic and operatic repertoires. He was also frequently invited to play with the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra in Germany, conducted notably by Christoph Eschenbach, Semyon Bychkov and Daniel Sanderling. After finishing his studies at the National University of the Arts, he was awarded a grant by the Mozarteum Argentino Foundation permitting him to continue his training in France. In September 2016, he entered the Regional Conservatoire in Paris where he studied with Yann Dubost. During the 2017/2018 season, he will be in residence at the Paris Opera Academy.

In 2018 Felipe Devincenzi is hired as double bass player in La Monnaie of Brussels.
