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.
Ricardo Ribeiro is an internationally recognized and critically acclaimed fado singer, receiving accolades such as Male Revelation Prize and Best Male Singer by Amália Rodrigues Foundation, the Revelation Award by Casa da Imprensa, the Henry the Navigator Award from Portuguese President Aníbal Cavaco Silva, and the Carlos Paredes Prize´17 by the Vila Franca de Xira City Hall for his latest album Hoje é Assim, Amanhã Não Sei. Ricardo was nominated for Best Artist of the Songlines Music Awards in both 2015 and 2017. Last November, Ricardo launched a new videoclip staring the well-known Portuguese comedian, actor and tv host César Mourão, for the theme “Fadinho Alentejano”. In 2018, he performed at Fajr Music Festival in Tehran, France, Vienna State Opera in Austria, and for the first time at the New York Fado Festival in the United States.
