Sun 11 December – JULIANA AREIAS – LA VIE EN ROSE IN IPANEMA – end of the year concert @ The Ellington Jazz Club – SOLD OUT
If Edith Piaf was Brazilian and Carmen Miranda French how would their music sound?
After 2 sold out nights at the Ellington with her Bossa Nova Baby concert and a recent performance at the Ritmo Festival at Darling Harbour in Sydney for 30.000 people, the Bossa Nova Baby, Juliana Areias is back presenting a new show with a Brazilian-French twist.
Fasten your seat belts and free up your imagination to enjoy a stunning night of breathtaking French classics and other finely selected tunes which have a French connection – interpreted with a Brazilian touch, grooves and accent – displaying the French influence within Brazilian Music and Jazz.
The concert will embrace timeless classics by Edith Piaf, Henri Salvador, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Joao Bosco and Carmen Miranda. On board with Juliana Areias on this sensuous musical journey, are some of the top, most versatile musos in town: Cathie Travers -accordion, Glenn Rogers-guitar, Adam Springuetti-bass, Marcio Mendes -percussion/backing vocals and Mike Boase-drums.
Brazilian chanteuse Juliana Areias has lived for many years in Europe (Switzerland) and New Zealand prior to moving to Australia. Always working in the music circuit, her career includes a performance at the revered Montreau Jazz Festival. Her authentic Brazilian voice, sense of groove, engaging charisma and a very personal and passionate stage presence are the trademarks of her work.
