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.
