Event

Ramana Vieira Ensemble
Ramana Vieira sings with such a wide range of emotions one cannot help but be mesmerized by images of "old world" Portugal that emerge from the depths of her soul. Her extraordinary gift of bringing this 15th century style into modern times is her unique trademark. Often referred to as the "New Voice of Portuguese World Music," this powerful vocalist is making her mark as one of the premier contemporary Fado artists.

According to the Portuguese, Fado is a melancholy and often mournful music similar to the American blues as it tells stories of heartache and disappointment. The essence of the poetry is the quality of "saudade," a word that is difficult to translate as it expresses a myriad of feelings.

Called a "rising star in World Music" by the San Francisco Examiner, Ramana has solidified her place as an artist who understands the tradition of Fado singing and continues to creatively construct a path into the future by combining new musical textures and original compositions. Many of the songs on her recordings are inspired by Ramana's main influence, Amália Rodrigues, known as the "Rainha do Fado" ("Queen of Fado") and who is attributed to popularizing the Fado worldwide. According to Ramana, "nobody else is doing what we are doing with Fado. Take the feel and groove of Shakira and the melodic textures of Dulce Pontes and that is how I would describe our music."

Notes:

Seating is cabaret style (table and chairs).  About six chairs per table.

Events will typically have a two-tiered ticketing scheme: Reserved Seating and General Admission.

RESERVED SEATING
This higher priced ticket guarantees a seat in the rows closer to the stage.  Additionally, the seat is held (reserved) until the ticket holder arrives.  As orders are placed, we manually assign best available seating on a first come, first saved basis.  Adjusting for singles, couples, larger parties as necessary.  About six people can sit comfortably at a table.  Specific table or area seating requests will be considered and accommodated as best as possible. For better service, requests such as this should be relayed to us well in advance of the show.  Please write us at seating@westsidetheatre.org.

GENERAL ADMISSION
These tickets sell for a few dollars less than Reserved Seating.  Seating in this section is on a first come, first served basis when the doors open one hour before the show starts.  General Admission ticket holders may occupy any available seat in their section.
