Ramana Vieira - Fado Music Fresno - Arte Americas

“...Fados with a contemporary spin”
-The Boston Globe

“...breathes new life into Fado.”
-The SF Chronicle

“...new age sensibility”
-The NY Times

Ramana Vieira is a contemporary American singer of the traditional Portuguese musical genre of Fado. A prominent influence on Vieira is the late Amália Rodrigues (who, arguably, was to fado what Edith Piaf was to French chanson and Celia Cruz was to salsa), but there are also hints of Dulce Pontes (who was born almost 40 years after Rodrigues) in Vieira's soulful, torchy performances. 

Her performances include classics like "Maria Lisboa," "Fado Marujo," and "Coimbra", but Vieira is far from a fado purist -- her ensemble incorporates contemporary jazz into the arrangements and give a new perspective to the traditional artform.
