Spring vibes with Juliana Areias – Flor de Maracuja – The Passion Flower Concert – Sat 13 Nov

PERTH – Sat 13 November – Juliana Areias – Flor de Maracuja – The Passion Flower Concert @ The Ellington Jazz Club – 7pm – BOOK NOW

Perth’s own award-winning Brazilian singer-songwriter, Juliana Areias, the “Bossa Nova Baby”, invites you celebrate 2021 Spring on a high note with the exuberant and colourful rhythms of her “Flor de Maracuja” – The Passion Flower Concert.

“Flor de Maracuja” will feature the exotic and irresistible music of Joao Donato, precursor of Bossa Nova and creator of Sambolero (a fusion of Brazilian Samba with Cuban & Mexican Bolero). You will be inspired to sway all the way during this magic night of Brazilian, Latin and Jazz Fusions.

To experience Donato’s music is to drink an elixir of happiness . You will feel enchanted by Donato’s fresh compositions such as his baiao/forro  “Flor de Maracuja” (The Passion Fruit Flower), his funky “A Ra” (The Frog)  and his iconic bossa “A Paz” (The Peace).  “A Paz” was co-composed with Gilberto Gil, and reflects on the human paradox of only being able to truly appreciate beauty and peace after suffering pain, war or challenging times.

Grammy Award winner Joao Donato (86 years old in 2020) has been performing, arranging and composing for the past 70 years. He started his musical career in the 1940s as a teenage accordionist and pianist. He composed “Minha Saudade” with Joao Gilberto and inspired Gilberto to create Bossa Nova. He also composed and recorded iconic contemporary songs with Sergio Mendes, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Marisa Montes, Arnaldo Antunes, Carlinhos Brown, Tito Puentes, Astrud Gilberto, Bebel Gilberto, Gal Costa, Zizi Possi, Joyce, Joao Bosco, Emilio Santiago, Lisa Ono to name just a few. His “Sambolero” album won the Latin Grammy Award for best Latin Jazz Album in 2010 and  his “Donato Eletrico” album was nominated for the Latin Grammy Best Instrumental Album of 2016.  Rolling Stone magazine named two of his albums as the Best Brazilian album of 2016 and 2017.

Aboard with Juliana for this musical adventure are her captains of groove, showcasing the amazing young talent and cultural diversity we are so lucky to have in Perth: Paul Millard (sax/flute), Joshua de Silva (guitar),  Tommi Flamenco (bass), Filippe Rimis (drums) and Rafael Medeiros de Souza (percussion).

Juliana Areias has performed on major stages around the world including the Sydney Opera House, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, the Green Room in New York, the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Auckland Festival in New Zealand and the legendary Beco das Garrafas in Rio de Janeiro. Dubbed the “Bossa Nova Baby” by iconic Brazilian journalist Ruy Castro, her original album “Bossa Nova Baby” won “Best Brazilian Album” at the US Focus Brazil Awards in 2019 and spent five weeks in the US Top 100 Jazz Charts. Juliana has also been nominated five times for Western Australian Music Awards including Best World Music Act and Best Song.

Now it is your turn to feel spellbound by the Bossa Nova Baby, Juliana Areias.

Juliana Areias – Feminina Concert – a tribute to Brazilian Women Composers – Sat 16 Oct 2021

Roll-up for an entrancing night of rhythms, sultry songs and evocative stories from the country of bossa nova, samba and carnival, with Perth’s own award winning Brazilian singer-songwriter – Juliana Areias, the “Bossa Nova Baby”.

Juliana Areias invites you to be seduced by the music of some of the most iconic Brazilian women composers of all time. Tune your senses and get to experience the true colours of Brazilian women’s love, passion, lust, loss, nature, instinct, intuition, power, motherhood, work, friendship and identity.

The Feminina Concert will celebrate what means to be a woman – the full spectrum of pleasures and challenges – according to the creative perspective of an amazing selection of Brazilian women songwriters: Joyce, Rosa Passos, Rita Lee, Marina, Marisa Montes, Ceu, Maria Gadu, Adriana Calcanhoto, Ana Carolina, Luedji Luna, Fatima Guedes, Zelia Duncan,  Maria Luiza Jobim, Vanessa Moreno, Vanessa da Mata, Teresa Cristina, Alcione, Chiquinha Gonzaga, Ivone Lara, Dolores Duran and Ale Kali. All of them are inspirations for Juliana Areias.
This concert will happen in the week of the 174th birthday of  the virtuoso, prolific and daring pianist Chiquinha Gonzaga, Brazil’s first woman conductor and successful composer who had her first musical hit in 1877 – a song called “Atraente” (attractive) in a polca-choro style. Also from Chiquinha Gonzaga comes the very first Carnival March Samba called “O, Abre Alas” (Please give way) released for the Carnival of 1899 and sung every Carnival parade in Brazil ever since. Chiquinha certainly pathed the way for every other Brazilian woman composer, including Rita Lee, Brazil’s queen of Rock, who recorded many songs with Joao Gilberto – the father of Bossa Nova. Rita and Joao, both pivotal musical influences for Juliana Areias as an artist.

This blazing concert will also showcase the sensational talent and cultural diversity we are so lucky to have in Perth. Juliana is always honoured to share the stage with her amazing Bossa Nova Baby Band featuring the grooviest cats in town: Paul Millard – sax/flute, Joshua de Silva – seven string guitar, Filipe Rimis – drums, and percussionist Rafael Medeiro de Souza.

Juliana Areias has performed on major stages internationally including the Sydney Opera House, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, the Green Room in New York, the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Auckland Festival in New Zealand and the legendary Beco das Garrafas in Rio de Janeiro. Local performances include concerts at The Perth Festival, and as a soloist with The Perth Symphony Orchestra for the 2021 Western Australian of The Year Awards.

Now it is your turn to be entranced by the authentic musical stylings of the Bossa Nova Baby herself, Juliana Areias.

Juliana Areias – Chico Brasileiro Concert – The sounds, characters and many faces of Brazil through the Music of Chico Buarque de Hollanda. (Sat 18 September 2021)

Juliana Areias – Chico Brasileiro Concert

Saturday 18 September 7.00pm – BOOK NOW

Roll-up for an entrancing night of rhythms, sultry songs and evocative stories from the country of bossa nova, samba and carnival with Perth’s own Brazilian singer-songwriter and “best Album USA” award winner – Juliana Areias, the “Bossa Nova Baby”.

Juliana Areias invites you to immerse your senses in the sounds, characters and many faces of Brazil through the music of Chico Buarque de Hollanda, or simply Chico – Brazil’s most acclaimed and multifaceted composer, lyricist, playwright, author and poet.

Chico’s music describes with emotion, lyricism, wit, social critique and mastery the feelings, desires, fortunes and misadventures of Brazilian people from all walks of life, genders, ages and dreams. His songs are like a Brazilian Carnival parade, where poets, clowns, pirates, lovers, rejected suitors, cabaret singers, vagabonds, politicians, married couples, divorced couples, kids, mothers, fathers, tradesmen, doctors, soccer-players, artists, dreamers and the cynical all dance together, celebrating the colourful cultural diversity and contradictions that makes Brazil’s culture, music and art so fascinating.

From the 1960s until now, Chico has produced over 60 original music albums and DVDs, and over 15 best-selling books, plays and films. His songs were censored during Brazil’s Military Dictatorship but in 2019 Chico was awarded the Camões Prize, the most important prize for literature in the Portuguese language. Being the first son of one of the most important Brazilian historians, sociologist and journalist Sergio Buarquede Hollanda, Chico grew up surrounded by academics, poets, intellectuals, diplomats such as Vinicius de Moraes – the most import lyricist of Bossa Nova. While finding time to play soccer with Bob Marley and other celebrities, he has also co-composed many iconic songs with Antonio Carlos Jobim, Djavan, Roberto Menescal, Edu Lobo, Francis Hime to name a few. He has also created the famous Brazilian kid’s play and album called “Os Saltimbancos” which has already been presented in Perth 3 times. Juliana Areias played “The Cat” in the first production. For this vibrant concert, Juliana Areais will have the pleasure of inviting the two other “Cats” – played by Viviane Coentro and Mari Mazzio – so they can all perform “The Cat Song” together at The Ellington. She is also inviting two more very special guests; director-singer Edu França and singer-musician Arthur Freitas to interpret two other important Chico Buarque songs. Juliana Areias is always honoured to share the stage with the groovy cats of her “Bossa Nova Baby Band”, featuring a blazing line-up of sensational musicians, and the amazing talent and cultural diversity we are so lucky to have in Perth: Paul Millard – sax/flute, Joshua de Silva – seven string hybrid guitars, Filippe Rimis – drums, and percussionist Rafael Medeiro de Souza.
Juliana Areias has performed on major stages internationally including the Sydney Opera House, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, the Green Room in New York, the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Auckland Festival in New Zealand and the legendary Beco das Garrafas in Rio de Janeiro.

Now it is your turn to be entranced by the authentic musical stylings of the Bossa Nova Baby herself, Juliana Areias.

Why Brazilians celebrate “Valentine’s Day” on 12th of June – Dia dos Namorados

Do you know why Brazilians don’t celebrate “being in love” on “Valentine’s Day”?

While around the world love birds celebrate “Valentine’s Day” on 14th February, Brazilians celebrate it on St Antony’s Eve Day (12th June) as part of the traditional “ Festa Junina” – The Brazilian June Winter Folk Festival – where couples dance around bonfires.

In Brazil around St Valentine’s Day, (14th February) it’s summer and Carnaval time – not necessarily a time associated with fidelity and romantic love.

Curiously both saints are somehow connected with the idea of marriage.

St Valentine was beheaded in Rome for secretly marrying Roman Empire soldiers against the orders of the Emperor Claudius II the cruel, on 14th February 269 AC. Legend also has it that while in jail, St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer’s daughter, who had become his friend, and signed it “From Your Valentine.”

St Antony was born in Portugal and died naturally in Padua in 13th June 1231 almost a millennium after St Valentine. He was considered a protector of lovers because he helped to finance marriages of pour families. In a time that fathers of girls were expected to pay to get their daughters married, St Antony helped them to find the funds for it.

If you love music, culture and stories, you are invited on a musical passage on the train of colours, precious gems, and songs from the Interior of Brazil. A blazing show to warm your winter and light a bonfire of the heart.

Juliana Areias – Beautiful Horizons – Festa do Interior Concert – ( Dia dos Namorados) – Sat 12 June 2021 – 7pm at The Ellington Jazz Club – Perth – Western Australia.
