About Leo Costa

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail.

Tell us why you chose this song. “Eu Quero Ir Pra Lá Mas Eu Não Posso (feat. Marcos Paiva & Rodrigo Digão Braz)” Instrumental music has always fascinated me because it communicates without words what words often cannot say. This specific song 'speaks' about the strength of following your dream and being able to turn it into music. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? The most outstanding moments of my career so far are the shows I played in Paris in 2014, receiving the FIE award from the Cité Universitaire International de Paris, as well as the release of my first album "Leo Costa" in 2017. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I would like to play at a big international music festival as well as my albums being heard by more people in Europe and USA.
