Ribeiro, named one of Ra­dio-Canada’s 2012 Reve­la­tions, is guided by a lucky star!

In Canada since 2006, he re­cently re­leased his sec­ond al­bum (his first in Quebec) Ego­logico Re­cy­cle, a smooth mix of the artist’s many in­flu­ences: Brazil­ian mu­sic, reg­gae, funk, Afro-Brazil­ian rhythms.
