Dan Costa, jazz pianist and composer, and a former student from the Académie de Musique Rainier III, has won a Silver Medal for Outstanding Achievement at the Global Music Awards, with the album “Suite Três Rios”, recorded in Brazil.
The album 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 the life story of the artist, who was born in London to Portuguese and Italian parents.
After studying for six years in Monaco, Dan underwent further classical training at the Académie Internationale d’Été de Nice as well as at the Aurora Music Star Festival in Sweden.

A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Despite the fact that Monaco will have played seven competition matches by the end of August, thanks to an early start to the season, ASM return triumphant from Villarreal on Wednesday night after a 2-1 win in a UEFA Champions League qualifying match. The return leg will be played next week at Stade Louis II.
Scorers for ASM were Tavares in the third minute and Silva in the 72nd. The third goal in the game came from Villarreal’s Pato in the 36th minute.
The away win for Monaco was all the more remarkable due to the club’s recent injury troubles. The club has been particularly hard hit by the thigh injury to striker Radamel Falcao, keeping him out of the side for four weeks. Wednesday’s win was a further boost for the club after Leonardo Jardіm’s tactіcal tweak on Frіday that pulled what could have been a disastrous result out of the fіre in the first Ligue 1 match of the season with a 2-2 draw at home to Guіngamp.
