The resonant voice of the extraordinary 28-year-old fado singer Ricardo Ribeiro is as
traditional as it comes: no pop sweetening, exotic embellishments or rock and roll influences. Fado is
one of the world’s oldest styles of urban song, born on the streets and alleys of typical old Lisbon
neighborhoods, and bears the influence of former Portuguese colonies, including several African countries
and Brazil. Pedro Joia, the superb Portuguese guitarist who accompanies many of the biggest fado stars,
will join Ribeiro.
