Dan Costa presents Suite Três Rios, an original jazz / world music project which reflects the convergence of various cultural influences. Recorded in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, it recaptures the essence of Brazilian rhythms, with shades of jazz and classical music.

The name is inspired by the confluence of the Solimões and Negro Rivers in the Amazon Rainforest, known as the Encontro das águas, reflecting the album’s connection with Brazil’s rich natural diversity. It also hints at Dan’s own background, born in London to Portuguese and Italian parents. Mixed by ECM engineer Jan Erik Kongshaug and mastered by John Greenham, the album features artists such as Jaques Morelenbaum, Teco Cardoso and Leila Pinheiro.
