Sunday pathos, by a fado artist other than Mariza.

About the Album

"Cabo Verde" is the first track from fado-influenced singer Ramana Vieira's new CD. On Fado da Vida, Vieira continues to infuse the centuries-old style of Fado – the most widely recognized music of Portugal – with a uniquely modern sensibility. Recognized by the New York Times as an American at the forefront of a Fado resurgence that is seeing Portuguese singers such as Ana Moura and Mariza selling out concert halls in the US, Vieira expands Fado's basic configuration of 12 string guitar and vocals into performances that include cello, violin, bass, accordion and drums. “Nobody else is doing what we are doing with Fado,” says Vieira.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
