May it be!
Perth Jazz Society invited Juliana Areias to perform for four Sundays consecutively in May at the Laneway Lounge (41/4 A Murray Street, Perth City)
Pairing up with top local jazz musicians, the Brazilian Singer and songwriter, Juliana Areias, will present an eclectic repertoire that ranges from tunes influenced by Brazilian pop rock and French jazz. With her Brazilian jazz / bossa nova flair, this is an excellent option for a unique Sunday session accompanied by Perth’s most delicious top shelf cocktails.
For lovers of local jazz, one of the highlights of these musical encounters is the presence of one of Perth’s dearest jazz pianist, Tal Cohen, who is flying in from Florida to take part in the second edition of the Perth International Jazz Festival.
“I am looking forward to performing with Tal Cohen again. The sea connects people and not the opposite and this is the motto that will inspire our session. We aim to experiment with our own original songs, so we can expect the unexpected and this how we like our music.”, Juliana Areias.
Sundays, from 6:30 to 8:30 at Laneway Lounge (41/4 A Murray Street, Perth City)
