About Yamandu Costa:
Based in Lisbon, the Brazilian musician Yamandu Costa enchants audiences wherever he goes with his unforgettable performances – solo, accompanied by other musicians or with orchestras – he carries the mark of music from the south of Brazil, and explores different musical genres, forming together with his seven-string guitar a rare symbiosis.

At the age of 21, the award-winning guitarist and composer received the Visa Instrumental Award, at the time the greatest recognition of Brazilian music that enabled him to release his first solo album. Since then, there have been several albums, solo or in partnerships; numerous concerts in Brazil and abroad; other awards, including the “Latin Grammy”, in 2021, as best instrumental music album with “Toquinho & Yamandu Costa – Bachianinha” (Live at the Rio Montreux Jazz Festival).
