Virtual Event

The 2021 Miami International GuitART Festival presents virtuoso 7-string guitar player Yamandu Costa in a solo concert. Praised by the La Presse Montreal as “Musicians of this caliber that make you fall out of your seat come once in a generation”, Yamandu has left audiences breathless around the world with his impressive skill and overwhelming passion.

Born in Rio Grande do Sul to a musical family, Yamandu Costa played his first major concert at age 17 in São Paulo and quickly gained international fame for his incredible talent. Yamandu is credited with reviving Brazilian guitar music and his diverse repertoire includes styles like chorinho, bossa nova, milonga, tango, samba and chamamé, making him difficult to categorize into a single genre. A 4X Latin GRAMMY nominee, Costa has collaborated with Bobby McFerrin, Richard Galliano, Doug de Vries, Gilberto Gil, Toquinho, João Bosco, Ney Matogrosso, Marisa Monte, Renato Borghetti as well as a featured soloist with symphony orchestras around the world. For this special concert Yamandu Costa will perform a breathtaking set of Latin American pieces as well as brand new original compositions.
