Concert: Yamandu Costa

Yamandu Costa, 7-string guitar virtuoso, is one of the few Brazilian instrumental music composers, extremely gifted musician, improviser and now at the age of 32, with his distinct way of playing, already a reference for the younger guitar generation.
Influenced by many great musicians like Lucio Yanel and Astor Piazzolla (from Argentina); Raphael Rabelo, Baden Powell and Antonio Carlos Jobim (from Brazil) and Django Reinhart (from France), Yamandu has created his very particular style of compositions, somewhere between the typical music from the south of Brazil, Choro and Samba with finger acrobatic like passages, high tempo and yet very delicate and melodious pieces. For the audience his music is somewhere between breathtaking and breathholding, accompanied by Yamandu´s way of melting with his instrument and being one for the duration of the concert.
Yamandu is embracing the range of root-Latinamerican music with a clear basis on Southbrazilian swing. More information at http://www.yamandu.com.br/

Conference dinner: “Comida de botequim”

In Portugal “botica” was a warehouse or store where groceries and offal were sold. In Brazil, in the nineteenth century, the “botiga” gave rise to the “botequim” that in addition to selling these products, also became a meeting point among customers.
In the early twentieth century, the owners began offering appetizers and beverages to customers as a way of pleasing. The locals used to go to the “botequim” to complete the purchases made ​​at the fairs, and took the opportunity to taste some delicacies, accompanied by a drink.
Just as France is known for its bistros, England for its pubs and Italy for their canteens, Brazil has become known for its botequins, where one seeks a good drink, tasty snacks and good conversation without commitment. Nowadays, for many people, going to the botequim is a program almost mandatory after a stressful day of work. There friends gather to relax and tell good stories, relying on a good glass of beer.
