Portuguese Accordion

Accordionist Fernando Ribeiro plays a program of instrumental music drawn from Fado (the Portuguese music genre characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics), Portuguese folklore and dances, and from Moorish, African, and Brazilian influences. The recording introduces Ribeiro to American audiences. Ribeiro is accompanied by an instrumental ensemble composed of amplified keyboard, bass, and percussion. The liner notes list the song titles and brief background information about each song.
