ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Open the Door is an amazing collaboration between recording artists Ajaya Davidson and Ramana Vieira. They combined forces and invited their friends, former members of Jefferson Starship, The Tubes, and the Band Zero to participate in this album.

The tracks were composed and produced by Ajaya Davidson, with the exception of “Who Wants to Live Forever” by Freddy Mercury of Queen.

The music is a dynamic collection of ballads composed by pianist/lyricist/producer Ajaya Davidson of Oakland, CA. Ajaya Davidson is a modern-day poet, singer, pianist, and spiritual community leader. Ajaya is a master of songwriting and production in a variety of unique styles.

His original CD, “Keys to the Kingdom”, has a Brit Prog Rock feel and features a tribute song to George Harrison. Arnie Frager producer for Fleetwood Mac and Paul Mccartney commented that he “loved the production and the songs.” Ajaya’s songs have also been performed by Tim Hockenberry, native San Francisco artist vocalist. Having spent time in many countries of the world including: England, India, Austria, and South Africa. Ajaya has immersed himself in the existential and spiritual questions of life.

Ramana Vieira is a Portuguese-American pianist and a gifted songwriter. She has composed scores of innovative pieces of music in both English and Portuguese. Several of her original Fado compositions have been nominated at the International Portuguese Music Awards (IPMA). Her original composition, “Unido Para Amar”, was played at the opening ceremony for the 2006 Winter Olympics.

About the Tracks:
“Who Wants to Live Forever”
Ramana infuses her Portuguese heritage in the original Queen track seasoning it with the flavor of Fado.

“Meu Coracao”, a sultry Portuguese fusion about a discovered love that turns tragic.

“Open the Door” is about believing and finally and opening one’s heart to love.

“Streets of Kabul” began when Ajaya walked into a Persian rug store in London. There he discovered examples of the war rugs, woven during the Russian invasion of Afghanistan. He was shocked to see images of war, bombing and death all woven into the fabric of the rugs ! Two weeks later, the song was born.

We hope you enjoy this incredible four-song collection of ballads with the raw rock energy of the famous bands from the 70s and 80s, Fado artist Ramana Vieira, and the brilliant Ajaya Davidson.
