“The Paganini of the Guitar” – Kurt Masur

Experience the mastery of Grammy award winning artist Yamandu Costa, one of the world’s greatest 7-string guitar virtuosos, in a solo performance that showcases the depth and breadth of Brazilian musical traditions. Known for his intense performances and impeccable technique, Costa brings the spirit of Brazil to life with every concert.

Critics have hailed him as “a prodigy” and “one of the greatest guitarists of his generation,” celebrated for his ability to “uncover the soul of Brazilian music with his fingers” (New York Times).

Yamandu’s name, meaning “the precursor of the waters of the world” in Tupi-Guarani, the native language of Brazilian Indians, aptly reflects his profound influence on the world of guitar music. With a discography that includes 17 CDs and 2 DVDs, and collaborations with celebrated artists such as Bob McFerrin, Pepe Romero and Melody Gardot, his performances transcend mere concerts—they are a celebration of Brazilian culture intertwined with his unique ability to blend musical styles.
