Ramana Vieira's Fado Music
Room 225, 2:30pm
Called the "New Voice of Portuguese World Music", this powerful vocalist is making her mark as one of the premier contemporary Fado artists. She has been featured in the New York Times, has headlined the world's largest Portuguese festival, performed at the 2010 Encontro festival in Macau, and one of her songs was played in an Olympic opening ceremony.
Her extraordinary gift of bringing the historic style of Fade into modern times is her unique trademark.
Her Ensemble now features the beautiful Portuguese guitarra, a signature sound in Fado music.
