[Repeated from Tuesday 8pm.] 'Nothing New Under the Sun'. A programme that reveals some of the most inventive and provocative musicians and composers from Brazil, presented by Francisco Mazza. The selected artists have in common a great sense of originality, experimentation and freedom, but for many years they were undeservedly labeled as damns, marginals or even completely ignored by the established commercial music industry. Today's programme features the work of Itamar Assumpção. For further information on Itamar's work and career visit daqueleinstanteemdiante.tumblr.com.
