AMERICAN a capella group Traces of Blue will alight the dome at Emancipation Park on Friday for the US Embassy's Blues on the Green (BOTG) event in celebration of Black History Month.

The dynamic vocal ensemble, formerly known as the Afro Blue Vocal Band, will perform at 6:00 pm.

As a group, Traces of Blue obtained international recognition through the third season of the NBC a cappella competition, The Sing-Off. They have since become a professional ensemble performing to adoring crowds who appreciate their musical style, which is based in blues and jazz, has allowed them to lend their signature sound to genres such as R&B, gospel, pop, hip-hop, funk, and many others.
