Rui Veloso, born in 1957, is a Portuguese rock singer and musician. Regarded as the “father of Portuguese rock”, this composer and interpreter had a great impact on the Portuguese music scene with the record Ar de Rock (April 1980).

Songs such as Chico Fininho and A Rapariguinha do Shopping were instant classics in the 1980s. His lyrics, usually written by Carlos Tê, are strongly influenced by Porto's culture. An unconditional lover of the blues, he has played with B.B. King, being also fascinated by Jimi Hendrix. He became one of the most productive and renowned Portuguese musicians, as his discography clearly shows today.
