The Rock-itt : September 2009
Café Carnivale Season Two Music from Portugal.... .The Mandie Vieira Trio Mandie Vieira was born Portuguese and has been performing professionally for ten years since she was 15 years of age as both a singer and violinist. In 2001 Mandie launched her first CD and toured Australia promoting it. In 2002 she appeared in a Hollywood film production, "Queen of the Damned, where she played a Gypsy Violinist. In 2005 she played her violin for a documentary on SBS so becoming the first Australian/Portuguese to perform the Fodo on Australian Television. She has travelled abroad staging concerts and raising money for charities. She has also toured Italy and Austria as part of the Suzuki Pan Pacific Conference on Tour. Mandie and the other two members of her trio, Tony Lantino, who plays Spanish Guitar and sings, and Manuel Iriar ,who is self taught and plays the Portuguese 12 string guitar. This guitar has a very unique sound and he thinks he could possibly be the only player of the Portuguese guitar in Australia. The Trio played to a packed house at Glen Street and they played the Fodo, often referred to as the Portuguese Blues, because of its sympathy to despair and feelings of destiny. With the wealth of knowledge and expertise of this talented trio, there was an instant connection between the artists and audience that made a memorable evening for those who attended this special performance.
