LFL Music of the World: Ramana Vieira
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. 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. Take the feel and groove of Shakira and the melodic textures of Dulce Pontes and that is how Ramana would describe her music. 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. Some of the highlights of Ramana's performance career include: opening for Grammy nominated fadista Mariza; performing her original song "Unido Para Amar" for the 2006 Winter Olympics video montage; and chosen to sing for the Grammy's 50th Awards special Music Cares benefit to honor Aretha Franklin. Her two prior recordings, "Despi A Alma (I Undressed My Soul)" and "Sem Ti" helped her to gain recognition, win awards, and appear on the cover of "Mundo Portuguese" Magazine. However, Ramana's truly magical spirit comes alive in her newest release on the Pacific Coast Jazz label, "Lágrimas De Rainha (Tears Of A Queen)" that supports Ramana's desire to invent a fresh Fado sound blooming from the ground of her own family roots.
