Amoy Ribas is such a force of nature and without doubt at home in the top league of Brazilian music. Ribas was born in Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, and has been interested in music from an early age.
Influenced to this day by jazz, samba, baiao and many other styles, he mixes musical genres and techniques of all kinds and transcends the percussion instruments from their function as pure rhythm instruments. It is not for nothing that the great Hermeto Pascoal called him "one of the best percussionists in the world." There can be no greater compliment. In addition to Pascoal, Ribas has also played with musicians such as Richard Galliano, Rolf Kühn, Joyce, Marco Pereira, Guinga, Hamilton de Holanda, Billy Blanco, Beth Carvalho, Leila Pinheiro, Joyce, Paulinho Moska and Gilson Peranzzetta.ASCAP award-winning flutist and composer
