The music festival República Blues has just announced the line up for its new edition at Funarte on April 20 and April 21. The program is free and promises two memorable evenings with presentations by Brazilian masters Hermeto Pascoal, Armandinho Macedo and Hamilton de Holanda.

The event, which features 16 performances by artists from Brasília, will also feature two international attractions: San Francisco-based singer-songwriter-guitarist Yannick Delass and Chicago musician Omar Coleman, one of the great references of modern blues.
