"I’ve always seen music as a means of transposing life experience into a language that is - to an extent - universal"


Dan Costa's modern jazz album, Suite Três Rios, recaptures the essence of Brazilian rhythms, with shades of classical music. Recorded in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, the name is inspired by the confluence of the Solimões and Negro Rivers in the Amazon Rainforest - the Encontro das Águas - which meet without changing their nature, their essence.

Mixed by Jan Erik Kongshaug and mastered by John Greenham, the album features Jaques Morelenbaum, Marcos Suzano, Ricardo Silveira, Leila Pinheiro and other artists.
