Brazilian 7-string guitar virtuoso Yamandu Costa returns to Seattle!

Oct 20, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Lightning tangled in his guitar strings – Brazil’s Yamandu Costa in Seattle for one night only!

KEXP and Giordano Productions Present Brazilian 7-string guitar Yamandu Costa to Seattle for one night only at the historic Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute on Friday, October 20 at 8:00pm.

A brilliant guitar player, composer, and arranger, Yamandu’s impressive and explosive live performance highlights a deep intimacy with the guitar switching between samba, choro, and tango with blistering dexterity. Listen to Yamandu: https://youtu.be/29xKAC_xKok

“Brazilian guitarist Yamandú Costa attacks the nylon strings of his guitar with a demonic playfulness. The fingers of his left-hand trace lightning riffs, pausing briefly to block out full chords as they range up and down the neck with effortless zeal. His body tenses with a kind of exhilaration. His head tilts back, then sideways; his eyes close, then open, wide as moons; his legs cross and uncross, then stretch out before him—as though he and his instrument were both being played by some virtuosic sprite, and he were merely an amazed observer. The music is as technical as the most challenging classical repertoire, but the rhythms bounce and glide along with the vigor of dance grooves from some charmed, imaginary land.” Guitar Player Magazine
