Fado Festival: Ricardo Ribeiro
One of the most distinctive artists in the new wave of fadistas. — Songlines Magazine
The resonant voice of the extraordinary fado singer Ricardo Ribeiro is as traditional as it comes: no pop sweetening, exotic embellishments or rock and roll influences. Considered one of today’s top male fado singers, his powerful, masterful voice is filled with emotion, and has earned him awards and international accolades. He will be accompanied by José Manuel Neto, Portuguese guitar; Carlos Manuel Proença, fado guitar; and Daniel Pinto, bass guitar.
