Back at the Ellington

“Great, very personal, full of passion, beautiful, natural” – it’s how the audience describes her performance.

After the success of her latest concerts at the Fremantle Festival, Sunset @ Subi  and her premiere night at the Ellington, Juliana was back at the Ellington with  her authentic Brazilian voice, great stage presence, groove and charisma on 8 June.

The audience rolled up for a stunning night of classic and contemporary bossa, samba, fusions, originals and improvisations featuring some of Perth’s most versatile musicians: guitarist Glenn Rogers, bassist Matt Bell and drummer Michael Boase – creating a new ‘Ginga’.

Ginga is a Brazilian word that describes the signature element, the malleable bilateral motion and spirit that Brazilians present in everyday life – always keeping in rhythm.

Ginga Brazil Concert repertoire embraced several shades of the Brazilian music spectrum and its resonance upon jazz and other international musical styles. Performing compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Pixinguinha, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Joao Bosco, Ivan Lins, Djavan, Joyce, Ceu, Lenine and Arlindo Cruz; the concert also brough original tunes composed by Juliana with local and international music partners around the world.

Juliana said, “I am glad to be part of sunset@subi and having the opportunity of celebrating music, Subi, summer, nature, outdoor living and cultural diversity all at once. What a great idea! I am looking forward to it!”

The Oasis in the middle of the week.

The end of the year brings the end of some projects and the prospective of new ones in the way.

Juliana  Areias made her last performance at the Ocean One Bar on 24 November 2010. She had performed at the venue every Wednesday night for over 10 months, attracting a devoted public of music lovers who were avid for a pleasant alternative of entertainment in the Perth Night Scene.

These regular performances were defined as “The oasis in the middle of the week” by Juliana Areias’ fans who were always there to get  inspired and vitalised by her music.

For Juliana Areias it also represented a live opportunity to create a musical lab, where she could share and experiment new songs, new ideas, new rhythms, new fusions and sonorities every week.

She says: “Thanks to the public who came to appreciate our music. Thanks to all friends and musicians for their enthusiasm and talent. Thanks to Ocean One team and sponsors for supporting the project. We all had a great and special time.”

Juliana Areias Band has recently performed at the Fremantle Festival 2010 and is already booked to perform at the Sunset @ Subi Series on 2011.

Ginga Brazil Concert Review and what’s next.

The Ginga Brazil Concert at Kulcha, the Multicultural Arts Centre of Western, was a great success.

In a quartet format, Juliana Areias (voice), Glenn Rogers (guitar), Adam Springhetti (double bass) and Marcio Mendes (percussion) had the pleasure to perform to a great and attentive public of Brazilian Music lovers on the 23 July. Their sophisticated repertoire included songs by Tom Jobim, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Joao Bosco, Ivan Lins, Djavan, Joyce and Lenine; among others composers.

Their innovative arrangement for “Carinhoso” (by Pixinguinha) demonstrated how a melodic choro can also become a pulsing baiao. 

The public cheered with excitement and enthusiasm the 3 original tunes of the concert: “Mare Cheia” (Johannes Dimyadi/ Juliana Areias); “Relaxa” (Adam Springhetti/Juliana Areias) and “Flecha de Oxossi” (Glenn Rogers/Juliana Areias) – where the genuineness of the cuica sound transported everyone to the mystical dimension of samba.

At the end of the concert, the public were still keen to listening to the performers’ music for much longer.  Many people have also inquired about CDs for sale. However it is not available yet, the next goal of the project is to record it. Therefore, keep your eyes and ears at www.julianaareias.com to be the first ones to know about it.

Seasoning the night, Brazilian Zest provided a delicious platter of typical Brazilian finger foods: pao de queijo ( Cheesebuddy), kibe, coxinha and risoles. (See the upcoming gigs page to find out about the new Brazilian Zest Jazz Club with Juliana Areias and guests starting from Fri 27 August).

“It was a stunning and magical night of Brazilians and Aussies creating music and celebrating cultural diversity together. A ruge thank to Kulcha  and  “gros merci”  to Bruno, ( Kulcha’s sound engineer of the night). Thank so much to all involved in this production (from musicians to sponsors), to all present in the concert and to all friends from near and far. Thank you for being part of it. Obrigadao!”. – says Juliana Areias.
