Ricardo “Cado” Dos Santos plays Brazilian music, but it’s not the kind of Brazilian music you might be imagining. This is not bossa nova or samba; Cado’s music is soulful, gentle, guitar-driven “world music,” as he calls it – a fusion of folk and gypsy jazz, samba and forró. Cado – also his stage name— is originally from Rio de Janeiro, though his family migrated to San Jose nearly 20 years ago.
