Ramana Vieira - An Evening of Fado Inspired Music & American Classics

Ramana Vieira and her group will perform traditional, ballad-style fados that pay homage to the “Queen of Fado” Amália Rodrigues, along with up-tempo compositions from their 2015 album, Fado Da Vida, from which three songs were nominated for the International Portuguese Music Awards.

Her new work captures influences from all the countries of Portuguese language and cultural heritage in a musical tapestry that ranges from whispering, haunting ballads to collaborations featuring the works of famous Portuguese-Canadian poet Euclides Cavaco.

Ramana’s ensemble includes Brad Bivens on guitar, Ela Polak on violin, Steve Fowler on acoustic bass and Stephen La Porta on percussion.
