Considered one of the greatest Brazilian guitar talents, YAMANDU COSTA is a world reference. His incredible performance, his passion and his absolute mastery of the instrument are astounding and hardly comparable. His creativity flies over a perfect technique exploring all the possibilities of the seven-string guitar, renewing old themes and presenting compositions of intense brilliance in a performance wrapped in an contagious emotion.

Revealing a deep intimacy with his instrument and a musical language without borders, he has toured the most important stages in Brazil and the world participating in major festivals and meetings, and winning some of Brazil’s most important music awards. In March 2020, Yamandu was appointed EXIB Ambassador of Ibero-American Musical Diversity for the “Promotion of musical collaborations in the Ibero-American sphere. Protection of the Ibero-American musical memory”.

Yamandu Costa is the Brazilian musician who today performs the most abroad, covering the most diverse countries in America, Europe (where he has been living since 2020) and Asia.  He has performed with some of the most prestigious orchestras and conductors in the world, such as the Orchestre National de France, Orchestre National de Belgique, Orchestre de Paris, MDR-Leipzig Symphony Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Adelaide Art Orchestra, OSB-Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra of the Province of Mato Grosso, the Orquesta Nacional de Musica Argentina and Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Kurt Masur, Kristjan Järvi, Alondra de la Parra, Roberto Minczuk, Leandro de Carvalho…
