Renowned Brazilian musicians Yamandu Costa and Renato Borghetti will meet in New York.
The performance is born from the encounter between two instruments that rarely meet: the seven-string guitar and the diatonic button accordion. The musicians’ roots from Rio Grande do Sul, a state in Brazil, are evident in their repertoire, as well as erudite themes. Their music is formed from a reinterpretation of Brazilian classical and yet their work is referenced in Brazilian and worldwide instrumental music.
The concert is part of the Ad Cordis Project’s program, which promotes instrumental music events while its proceeds support Pequeno Príncipe Hospital – Brazil’s largest exclusively pediatric facility.
