Rui Manuel Gaudêncio Veloso, commonly known as Rui Veloso, CavIH (born in 30 July 1957, Lisbon), is a Portuguese rock and blues singer and musician. This composer and interpreter had a great impact on the Portuguese music scene with the record, Ar de Rock (April 1980), which influences were Eric Clapton and B.B.King.
Songs such as Chico Fininho and A Rapariguinha do Shopping became instant classics in the 1980s. His lyrics, normally written by Carlos Tê, are strongly influenced by the Porto culture. An unconditional lover of the blues, he has played with B.B. King several times. He became one of the most productive and renowned Portuguese musicians, as his discography clearly shows today.
