Her Influences, Spirit & Artistry
An American Fado singer, Ramana Vieira was born with Fado music
in her blood. Her grandfather was a famous musician and composer from Madeira Island in Portugal, and while born in San Leandro, CA to Portuguese immigrants, Vieira was exposed to traditional Fado music at a young age. To enhance her natural gift for music, Vieira later attended The American Conservatory Theatre to train under Faith Winthrop. It wasn’t until a trip to Portugal, where she had the opportunity to perform with local Fado musicians, that Vieira decided to embrace her Portuguese roots and invest herself fully into Fado music.
Fado for the 21st Century
Inspired by the Queen of Fado, Amália Rodrigues, Vieira has always loved the traditional Fado style and has created original music influenced by Rodrigues and many others. However, Vieira has found her place as a Fado singer of the 21st century by maintaining the tradition of Fado singing while forging a new path with new creative layers, textures and compositions.
