Aventura Arts & Cultural Center welcomes Yamandu Costa: a spectacular guitarist and composer who makes music with soulful passion, playful grace, and stunning virtuosity that has transcended the borders of Brazil and become universally acclaimed wherever he performs. Fans say: “Amazing and nuanced Brazilian music by a true guitar virtuoso. Gorgeous and impressive. So many emotions expressed with such an astonishing variety of sounds coaxed out of one guitar.”
Twice nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Instrumental album (2010, 2014), Yamandu is a unique improviser and interpreter who does not fit into a single category, but instead creates his own when playing his 7-string guitar. Extensive touring has showcased his genius and natural ability of enchanting the audience at sold out venues in Brazil and around the world.
So far, Yamandu has recorded 13 CDs and 3 DVDs, solo, in duo or with his trio. He has also performed as featured soloist with the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra of São Paulo, Calgary Philharmonic, and the Orchestre National de France. His passion and unique style has inspired many young musicians who are following his new school of playing the guitar. Yamandu Costa continues to record and tour around the world.
