As part of EducArte’s first Brazilian Guitar Masters Festival, we present Brazilian music icons and Latin GRAMMY® winners Yamandu Costa and João Bosco! Experience the exuberance, virtuosity, and passionate energy of Brazilian rhythms on guitar. Yamandu Costa performs on Friday, May 31, at Miracle Theatre in Eastern Market and João Bosco performs on Saturday, June 1, at Catholic University.

About João Bosco:


João Bosco has been loved in his home country of Brazil for decades, since the 60s when he first began composing and performing. In the early 90s, Bosco mounted a major tour of the US, and since then he has become increasingly popular internationally, regularly performing at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival.

Despite his growing popularity outside of his homeland, Bosco remains thoroughly attached to Brazil to the point of never leaving it for extended periods. His music, though rooted in Brazil’s classic samba and bossa nova traditions, combines rock and roll, jazz, African sounds, and many other global styles in an eclectic brew that is as inventive and challenging as he is.

João Bosco performs with top musicians from Brazil, including guitarist Ricardo Silveira, Francisco “Kiko” Freitas on drums, and Gustavo Dellagerisi on bass.

EducArte is thrilled to present João Bosco with his quartet here in Washington, DC, at Catholic University’s Hartke Theatre.


João Bosco é querido em seu país natal, o Brasil, há décadas, desde os anos 60, quando começou a compor e se apresentar. No início dos anos 90, Bosco organizou uma grande turnê pelos Estados Unidos e, desde então, tornou-se cada vez mais popular internacionalmente, apresentando-se regularmente no prestigiado Festival de Jazz de Montreux.

Apesar de sua crescente popularidade fora de sua terra natal, Bosco permanece profundamente ligado ao Brasil, a ponto de nunca mais sair do país por longos períodos. Sua música, embora enraizada nas tradições clássicas do samba e da bossa nova do Brasil, combina rock and roll, jazz, sons Africanos e outros estilos globais em uma mistura eclética que é tão inventiva e desafiadora quanto ele.

João Bosco se apresenta com músicos de destaque do Brasil, incluindo o guitarrista Ricardo Silveira, Francisco “Kiko” Freitas na bateria e Gustavo Dellagerisi no baixo.

EducArte tem o prazer de apresentar o quarteto do João Bosco aqui em Washington, DC, no Hartke Theatre da Catholic University.
