Uaná Duo is an acoustic project which brings Ian Costabile on guitars and Raquel Costabile on vocals, violins, recorders and percussions. Uaná means firefly in an Indian-Brazilian language (Tupi-Guarani) and have been chosen by the duo as their own song\'s lyrics are based on Brazilian folk tales. In Liverpool (UK) they have played weekly at Magnet Bar and at Blackburne Arms Hotel in 2009. From 2010 they have been playing in places as Mello Mello Bar and in many private events around the UK\'s North West. In July 2011 they played with a full band called Akel in the Brazilica Festival. Currently they perform weekly at Bem Brasil Restaurant (Liverpool and Manchester).
Their repertoire includes a huge selection of Brazilian music styles, such as Bossa Nova, Samba, Choro, Baião and others. Evoking different atmospheres they perform differently for special occasions like playing softly for background music (restaurants, events) or loudly for pubs, bars and clubs.
Ian Costabile is a BA graduated in Music Composition and has been performing, producing and teaching music. In 2010 and 2011 he also performed Jazz and Latin music with an instrumental duo called Lylium Guitar Duo in several places in the UK.
Raquel Costabile has a degree in Music and Education and has already performed in Flamenco groups as a violinist and in Baroque music groups as a recorder player. She teaches music for children in schools as well.
