So, on Saturday May 13, we will open the doors of our Buteco one last time to the world famous Diego Figueiredo bringing to our stage all of his talent and musical experience.

Opening for Diego will be a Pittsburgh based and Casa Brasil's resident artist Lilly Abreu. For the last 3 years, Lilly Abreu's Trio have hosted a monthly Bossa Nights at our Buteco event space highlighting Bossa Nova classics. For this special evening Lilly will be accompanied by Zé Maria, a Brazilian guitarist also based here in Pittsburgh.
