The gaucho musician brings his acclaimed repertoire for the first time to the Palau on October 22nd, in a concert that mixes influences from rhythms such as the bossa nova, the milonga or the chamamé.
Maestros de la Guitarra has always kept its eyes on big names in music. And for years, the name of the Brazilian guitar virtuoso Yamandú Costa was constantly heard from the mouth of the festival’s programmers.
Because Yamandú is a genius, an odd guitarist from a country that unites cultures, that breathes music and where, despite political turbulence, art survives.
When he was in Brazil, in 2013, Paco de Lucía had to book one night in the southern city of Porto Alegre to listen closely to one of the greatest Brazilian guitarists of all time.
This year Yamandú Costa will finally be able to bring his seven-string guitar to a stage on which all the greats guitarists should play once in their lifetime: the Palau de la Música Catalana – one of the most beautiful concert halls in the world.
Because the Brazilian is undoubtedly one of the greats. His concerts masterfully portray his origins in a region with strong cultural ties with Argentina and Uruguay and bring together rhythms such as choro, bossa nova, milonga, tango or chamamé.
Nominated to the Latin Grammy for the album “Recanto”, Yamandú Costa is, together with Antonio Rey, Jesús Guerrero Trio and the trio Josemi Carmona, Carles Benavent and Antonio Serrano, one of the great stars of this year’s edition of the festival Maestros de la Guitarra.
