By now we’ve come to expect first class musical performances from Yamandu Costa, an acclaimed guitarist and composer from Brazil. In Festejo, he pairs his music beautifully with the virtuoso multi-instrumentalist Marcelo Jiran. To be sure, Jiran is a full band! Their interplay is complementary, correlative, and conclusive. Through each exquisitely composed and arranged piece, Costa and Jiran are headed in the same direction, giving each other space, and conversing in a stirring and poignant manner. In a word, this album is breathtaking.
