Mário Costa presents “Oxy Patina – Circum-Navegação Solo” live at the Land Art Festival

Mário Costa, drummer and composer from Vianense presents on September 19 at the Land Art Festival in Sever do Vouga his project “Oxy Patina – Circum-Navegação – Solo”.

After the debut last June of a new repertoire inspired by the first circumnavigation trip led by Fernão Magalhães, in a quartet (accompanied by Benoit Delbecq, Bruno Chevillon, and Justin Stanton), Mário Costa now presents himself in a solo format.

Starting from original compositions, setting to music feelings that can torment us in an extensive journey confined to a ship, such as Angústia, Saudade or Determination and using the vocabulary of jazz – improvisation – Mário Costa sails towards his dream island: a crowded stage of musical instruments, with the maximum available timbres, from traditional Portuguese percussion instruments to drums, passing through electronic percussion.

A “Circum-Navigation” that unites Peoples, Traditions and Cultures without crossing Continents and Oceans, just using this universal language – Music.

Mário Costa is one of the main references of contemporary jazz and drums in particular. He has built a remarkable musical career, with more than 600 concerts performed as a drummer for artists such as Miguel Araújo, António Zambujo and Ana Moura, with whom he has already shared the stage in the most renowned rooms around the globe, such as the Sidney Opera House, Carnegie Hall NYC or Berlin Philharmonic.

Simultaneously, he has continuously integrated various national jazz formations and collaborated with several musicians from different generations, from João Mortágua or Hugo Carvalhais to Carlos Bica or Mário Laginha.

The musician is already preparing the release of his second album as leader – OXY PATINA IV – which will be presented to the public in 2022.

The concert “OXY PATINA CIRCUM-NAVEGAÇÃO SOLO” has the support of the European Funds Portugal 2020 through the Guarantor Culture and Compete 2020 Program.
