Colorado Brazil Fest, in collaboration with the Boulder Guitar Society and Dan & Diane Concerts, is thrilled to bring back Brazilian 7-string guitar virtuoso Yamandu Costa to Colorado for only one night at the Broomfield Auditorium.
"Brazilian guitarist Yamandu 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."
