Juliana Areias Jazzes Up The Green Room 42 with BOSSA NOVA BABY

Juliana Areias Jazzes Up The Green Room 42 with BOSSA NOVA BABY

Australian-based Brazilian singer-songwriter Juliana Areias wraps up her first U.S. Tour on Friday, June 29, with a salute to 60 years of the bossa nova at The Green Room 42, an upscale cabaret club serving New York City’s theater district. Drawing on traditional Brazilian bossa nova rhythms, Ms. Areias performs a distinctive style of Latin Jazz which has made her a hit down under. She will be joined by a Brazilian jazz ensemble which includes Oriente Lopez on piano, Jorge Continentino on flute and sax, Itaiguara Brandão on bass, and Samuel Martinelle on drums. Her show highlights a blend of original songs from her internationally acclaimed “Bossa Nova Baby” CD plus a selection of exclusive arrangements of bossa classics and samba hits.

Born and raised in Brazil, Juliana Areias began her music career in Europe before moving to Australia. It was her all original CD “Bossa Nova Baby” that catapulted her to fame less than two years ago. Featured on Australia Day 2016, the CD received multiple music award nominations and earned regular air play around the world. Her Bossa Nova Baby Show is filled with original tunes as well as classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema” and “Mas Que Nada,” blending jazz, pop, funk, ballad, and tango, all drawing on infectious samba rhythms.

Ms. Areias has performed at many major venues around the world including the famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Auckland Festival in New Zealand, The Sydney Opera House in Australia and Beco des Garrafas, the legendary jazz club in Rio de Janeiro. Her first U.S. tour which began in Florida and ends in New York City marks the launch of her “Bossa Nova Baby” CD in America. In mid-June, she performed at New Jersey’s popular Bickford Theatre to an enthusiastic audience of bossa nova fans.

“I’m looking forward to appearing at New York City’s Green Room 42 with such a talented group of musicians,” said Juliana Areias. “Bossa Nova is my essence as a person, my original impulse as a singer and my life-soul-heart’s pulsation and it is an honor to share it with audiences around the world. Touring the United States has been a thrill and it has touched my heart to see my fans have as much fun as I do at each show.”

Joining Ms. Areias for the finale of her U.S. tour will be a talented ensemble of jazz musicians. Multiple Grammy-winning pianist Oriente Lopez came to New York from his native Cuba in 1993 and has collaborated with many artists including Paul Simon, Regina Carter, and Paquito D’Rivera. Jorge Continentino was born in Rio de Janeiro where he studied flute and saxophone. Since moving to New York 15 years ago, he has become best known for his collaborative Latin music group Forro in the Dark. The Brazilian bassist Itaiguara Brandao is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music and has become one of the most sought-after Latin and World Music artists, touring and recording with musicians such as Romero Lubambo, Robin Eubanks, and Paquito D’Rivera. And drummer Samuel Martinelli has worked with many top jazz musicians including Claudio Roditi, Alcione, Hendrik Meurkens, Nilson Matta, and Marcus McLaurine.

Juliana Areias, Bossa Nova Baby will appear at The Green Room 42 inside Yotel, NYC on Friday, June 29, at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are from $20 to $50 and there is no food or beverage minimum. With an extensive menu and bar, the entertainment venue has been embraced by theater fans and regularly brings in top talent. The Green Room 42 is located at 570 Tenth Avenue and 42nd Street on the 4th Floor inside YOTEL. Call 646-449-7792 for more information or go to www.onfournyc.com/tickets.html to reserve tickets.

Blame it on the bossa nova tonight with Brazilian rhythms at the Bickford in Morristown

Juliana Areias and her band will perform songs from her debut CD, “Bossa Nova Baby,” at the Bickford Theatre on June 15.  The Brazil-born singer-songwriter will also play original arrangements of bossa nova classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema.”

Angelyne Wolfe
As a teen in Sao Paolo in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when most of her peers were enjoying the hits of the day, Juliana Areias was drawn to the bossa nova – a style that was already about 30 years old. Areias knew – but didn’t care – that her contemporaries listened to a different type of music. “It was unusual for someone my age to listen to the bossa nova,” she said.

Thanks to her guitarist father, Areias was exposed to bossa nova, samba, and other vintage Brazilian rhythms. She also met leading musicians, such as Roberto Menescal and Ronaldo Boscoli, as well as music journalist Ruy Castro.

Castro was so impressed that a teen would enjoy a musical style that was 30 years old that he gave young Juliana a nickname: “Bossa Nova Baby.”

Now a singer-songwriter, Areias used that sobriquet as the title of her debut CD, released in 2015.  As part of her current tour, Areias and her band will make their New Jersey debut at the Bickford Theatre at the Morris Museum on Friday, June 15.

Though the 12 songs on “Bossa Nova Baby” form the core of her set list, Areias sees her concert as a mini-history of the bossa nova and an indication of its future.

“We’re celebrating 60 years of this music,” said Areias.  She noted that the first bossa nova hit in Brazil was “Chega de Saudade” (“No More Blues”), released in 1958.

She credited three Brazilians for creating the bossa nova style: guitarist Joao Gilberto, modernist poet Vinicius De Moraes, and composer Antonio Carlos Jobim.

“You had post-World War II jazz mixing with the samba, and that created the bossa nova,” Areias said.  “Jobim would also say there was a classical influence, too.”

Compared to some other Brazilian styles, bossa nova is thus relatively recent.  Areias said that several of the original composers – including her friend Roberto Menescal, Carlos Lyra, Marcos Valle, and Joao Donato – are still active.

The upbeat rhythms and optimistic lyrics of bossa nova found an audience in the U.S. in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Songs such as Jobim’s “The Girl from Ipanema” became staples for jazz artists and adult pop vocalists.

But Areias stressed that her approach to bossa nova is not restricted to the past.  “Bossa nova is still evolving and mixing with other styles of music,” she said.  “We want to show how bossa nova sounds now, in 2018.”

Areias’ own songs reflect such influence as funk and pop.  She also draws on the tango, the samba, and the choro (a Brazilian style that even pre-dates the samba).

In concert, Areias and her band play new arrangements of bossa nova standards, besides her own songs.  Her version of “The Girl from Ipanema” was strongly influenced by the late guitarist Raphael Rabello, who added a flamenco beat to the song.

Areias also performs versions of “Rio” and “O Barquinho” (“Little Boat”), co-written by Menescal.  “We play classics, and some that aren’t as well known,” she said.

The idea of mixing styles and cultures is reflected in Areias’ life and her music.  When she was 21, she left her native Brazil and moved to Switzerland.  For a time, she lived in New Zealand before settling in Perth, Australia, where she lives.

Though Down Under may not seem like a hotbed for Brazilian music, Areias said she feels at home living and working in Perth.

She pointed out that the city has a thriving cultural life as the home to the University of Western Australia.  At the same time, Perth is hours away from other large cities by plane.

“The isolation gives the freedom of creation,” Areias said.  “Instead of just absorbing influences from the whole world, we develop our own roots, mixtures, and experiments to present to the world.”

Areias said she hopes her music allows audiences to understand those mixtures and experiments.  “Our music is engaging and happy,” she said.  “I want to take people on a journey with us.”

Em setembro, Brasil e Austrália celebram 70 anos de relações diplomáticas. Para celebrar o aniversário, o Consulado Geral do Brasil em Sydney e o Conselho Empresarial Austrália-Brasil (AubrBC) comemoram a data com show de Juliana Areias no Opera House, em Sydney, em evento exclusivo no próximo dia 8 de setembro. A cantora lançou em fevereiro o CD “Bossa Nova Baby” e foi aclamada pela imprensa australiana.

“Será uma noite inesquecível. Estou muito feliz e horada com o convite para apresentar o show Bossa Nova Baby no cartão postal australiano e poder celebrar o meu amor pelo Brasil e pela Austrália junto com os 500 convidados do evento. Muito feliz também de ver o álbum Bossa Nova Baby ganhando o mundo, sendo tocado em rádios da Austrália toda, Brasil, America Latina, Estados Unidos, Europa e Japão. Bossa Nova em toda parte, feita aqui e agora!”, comemora Juliana.

Lançado em dedicação aos 450 anos da cidade do Rio de Janeiro, o álbum teve patrocínio do Departamento de Cultura e Artes do Governo de Western Australia e de uma campanha bem-sucedida de crowd-funding que envolveu fãs e seguidores espalhados por países tão diferentes quanto Itália, Qatar, Andorra, Nova Zelândia e, claro, Brasil e Austrália. O CD reúne 12 músicas originais compostas por Juliana Areias pelo mundo afora e gravadas em Perth com alguns dos músicos de jazz mais conhecidos e consagrados da Austrália, como Pete Jeavons, Graham Wood, Ray Walker, Marcio Mendes, Chris Tarr, Paul Millard.

O álbum está disponível nos principais serviços de música online e também no site da cantora emwww.julianaareias.com.

Além do show no Opera House, a cantora se apresenta também em Sydney no dia 9 na casa de jazz Foundry616. Depois, em outubro, a cantora irá se apresentar em Londres e Amsterdã. “Estou em busca de parcerias para viabilizar uma turnê pelo Brasil no futuro”, conta a cantora.

Review – The Australian by Tony Hillier , 6 June 2015

The Australian Weekend Australian review Juliana Areias Bossa Nova baby Tony Hillier

” Back in Brazil, where she was raised and given the nickname Bossa Nova Baby, Juliana Areias has been compared to Bebel Gilberto, the genre’s golden girl. Now this Sao Paulo-born singer is the toast of Perth’s jazz scene. Areias cut her teeth on Corcovado and other Antonio Carlos Jobim classics, but the release of Bossa Nova Baby has elevated her above a mere covers singer or bossa specialist. Not that she has turned her back on her heritage. Her first album comprising all original compositions starts with Garoto de Copacabana, which tips a panama to The Girl from Ipanema, the song that helped introduce the suave samba-derived music to the world. While it’s a classy introduction, with cool flugelhorn and saxophone echoing Areias’s dulcet tones, it’s merely a harbinger of what’s to come in a set that features consummate accompaniment from the cream of West Australia’s Latin jazz instrumentalists. The singer excels in an elegant co-composed duet (Belas Artes) with Australia’s finest Brazilian-oriented 7-string guitarist, Doug de Vries. Four-stringed cavaquinho guitar and trombone help generate rhythm as Areias ups the ante in Ultima Cancao De Um Amor. In Flecha, the singer salutes samba and the Rio carnival, aided by a battery of percussion (pandeiro, surdo, cuica et al) and electric guitar. Alto flute helps create ambience in a quieter New Zealand-inspired bossa that’s delivered in English. Portuguese Guitarra and a guest choir respectively illuminate folkloric-styled pieces dedicated to northern and eastern Brazil.”

review Antonio Carlos Miguel O Globo Juliana Areias Bossa Nova Baby CD 2 June 2015

“Também em versão digital, disponível em diversos serviços de streaming, conferi “Bossa nova baby”. É música brasileira produzida na remota cidade australiana de Perth, local onde vive desde 2009 a cantora e compositora paulistana Juliana Areias (Correção: ao ser publicado, este texto dizia que a cantora era carioca. A informação foi corrigida em 2 de junho).

A boa impressão deixada em fevereiro passado por seu primeiro single, “Flecha”, se confirma em muitas outras canções. Basicamente, sambas e bossas com um pé no jazz garantem o interesse, incluindo “Maré cheia” (esta é uma que, por exemplo, cairia bem demais na voz de Gal), “Última canção de um amor”, “Missão” e “Como vai”. Uma balada entre o tango e a milonga, “Dia a dia”, e um choro-canção, “Belas artes”, têm função mais introspectiva. Mas, abrindo demais leque, pouco acrescentam a toada sertaneja “Estrela acalanto”  e o carimbó “Meu lugar”. De qualquer forma, mesmo com essas eventuais bolas fora, “Bossa nova baby” é surpresa de boa canção brasileira feita longe e ainda ignorada entre nós. Para quem estiver por perto, neste domingo (31/5), Juliana participa do Perth International Jazz Festival.”

(Translation) – ” I reviewed the “Bossa Nova Baby” album in its digital version as available via several streaming services. It is Brazilian music produced in the remote Australian city of Perth, where singer-songwriter Juliana Areias from São Paulo has lived since 2009.

The good impression left last February by her first single “Flecha” (Arrow) is confirmed by many other songs. Basically, the album consists of interesting sambas and bossas with one foot in the jazz world; including “Mare Cheia” (Full Tide) (this is a song that, for example, would be a good fit for Gal Costa’s voice), “Última canção de um amor” (Last song of a love), “Missão” (Mission) and “Como vai” (How are you). A ballad that sits between tango and milonga, “Dia a dia” (Day to Day), and a choro-canção,  “Belas artes” (Fine Art), are more introspective. However, the toada sertaneja “Estrela acalanto” (Star lullaby) and the carimbó “Meu lugar” (My place), open the range too wide and add little to the album. Even with these possible off kicks, “Bossa Nova Baby” is a welcome surprise of good Brazilian music, made far away, and as yet unknown in Brazil. For those who are nearby, on Sunday (31/5), Juliana will be part of the Perth International Jazz Festival.

Jazz and Beyond – Bossa Nova Baby CD review by John McBeath – The Australian – June 2015

Jazz and Beyong CD Review John McBeath Peter Wokener Juliana Areias Bossa Nova Baby

Brazilian-born vocalist Juliana Areias, has been resident since 2009 in Perth, WA where this album was recorded. All twelve of these Bossa tracks were co-written by Areias and sung in Portuguese with lyrics translated into English in an accompanying booklet. The backing varies in size and instrumentation from the single, softly expressive solo guitar of Doug DeVries on Belas Artes (Fine Arts) up to seven musicians and a special guest choir of eleven voices on Meu Lugar (My Place) featuring a variety of Brazilian percussion instruments plus a surdo – an extra large bass drum – and two snare drums
The songs come in different Brazilian rhythms: bossa, samba, tango, and choro and Areias is more than capable in all of them. She has been compared to the iconic Bebel Gilberto, daughter of Joao Gilberto, in Brazil’s acclaimed EPOCA magazine
The mood is set in the opener Garoto de Copacabana (The Boy From Copacabana) with a Latin/bop sounding intro from a septet, as Areias slides into the lyrics in her rhythmically perfect and passionate vocal delivery. A piano solo from Graham Wood, followed by one on flugelhorn from Ricki Malet add contrast. Innocencia (Innocence) has solo piano behind quick vocal phrases inserted against an interesting, descendant harmonic structure, while Missao (Mission) moves into a quick samba rhythm with a bright voicing and vibrant backing
Here’s an agreeable vocal bossa album with enough variety and skilled musicianship to maintain interest, and the agile Portuguese lyrics sound exotic and romantic

Referência entre os brasileiros na Austrália, Juliana Areias prepara primeiro álbum

11/03/2014 17h00

Juliana Areias – brasileira faz sucesso na Austrália cantando bossa nova (Foto: Divulgação)

“Poucos brasileiros a conhecem, mas Juliana Areias – assim como Bebel Gilberto antes de estourar por aqui – faz sua bossa, há 15 anos, fora do Brasil. A cantora, que mora há seis anos em Perth (Austrália), mas já viveu na Nova Zelândia e Suíça, prepara seu primeiro álbum, Bossa Nova Baby, com 12 músicas autorais que exploram as influências da bossa nova nos lugares por onde passou. “Bossa Nova Baby é meu apelido musical e reflete a minha essência como cantora e compositora. Sinto que é um trabalho único, bem distante do que eles conhecem e agora atingi a maturidade profissional”, conta ela que, seja onde for, faz questão de cantar em português. “É uma maneira de manter a língua viva e, além disso, a maioria dos estrangeiros ama música brasileira”.

Um dos destaques do álbum é Maré Cheia, já disponível em versão ao vivo no Youtube. “Fiz essa música quando estava na Nova Zelândia, com o músico e compositor Johannes Dimyadi. Na época, tínhamos um trio chamado Bel Bossa e a música fala sobre o mar, uma influência que tive quando morei na Bahia e uma referência à Iemanjá. A letra conta um romance de uma sereia com um pescador”, diz ela, que também compôs Garoto de Copacabana, uma versão masculina e contemporânea da Garota de Ipanema. “Procurei fazer uma irreverência, com vocabulário mais ousado, de uma mulher apreciando um homem”.

Juliana Areias: bossa nova e jazz brasileiro na Austrália

Mesmo morando fora, cantora prepara álbum em português

RICARDO SCHOTT
Juliana Areias: contato com Ronaldo Bôscoli e Luiz Eça aos 15 anos solidificou o amor pela bossa nova

Foto:  Divulgação Rio – Bossa nova na Austrália. E na Nova Zelândia. E na Suíça. Parece quase impossível, mas levar o ritmo para essas localidades é o que tem movido a cantora Juliana Areias. Ela já passou pelos dois últimos países e vive há seis anos em Perth, na terra dos cangurus, onde prepara um disco que une jazz e bossa, ‘Bossa Nova Baby’.

“Por aqui, sinto que eu faço um trabalho pioneiro. É uma música bem distante do que eles conhecem”, conta. “Na Nova Zelândia e Suíça, sentia que o terreno estava já semeado. Especialmente na Suíça, já que há décadas havia músicos brasileiros lá. Uma amiga minha de lá aprendeu português só para escutar Chico Buarque, porque havia uma canção dele numa propaganda”. Até optar pela bossa, Juliana chegou a trabalhar como atriz. Aos 13 anos mudou-se de São Paulo, onde nasceu, para Salvador. “Adquiri um sotaque soteropaulistano. E muita gente acha que sou do Rio”, brinca. Seu envolvimento com música, que começou na infância, se solidificou aos 15 anos ao conhecer figuras da bossa nova como o letrista Ronaldo Bôscoli (1928-1994) e o pianista Luiz Eça (1936-1992) nos bastidores do musical ‘Chega de Saudade’. Baseada no livro do escritor Ruy Castro, a peça tinha roteiro de Bôscoli e Miéle. “Tive a chance de ir a ensaios, jantar com eles. Tinha até carteirinha de imprensa para andar nos bastidores. Era incrível como uma menina da minha idade adorava bossa nova”, conta. A mudança para a Suíça veio aos 21 anos. “Uma ex-namorada do meu pai mudou-se para a Suécia quando eu tinha 5 anos, e passou a me mandar cartas e presentes. Só que, criança, eu não sabia ler direito e entendi que era na Suíça. Passei a sonhar em ir para lá”, brinca ela, que passou a cantar lá. Apesar de Juliana apresentar um ou outro clássico da MPB nos shows (‘Mas Que Nada’, de Jorge Ben Jor, é um deles), o foco de ‘Bossa Nova Baby’ é em músicas autorais, todas em português. Entre elas, ‘Maré Cheia’ (parceria com Johannes Dimyadi, músico nascido na Indonésia), ‘Estrela Acalanto’ (que fez para os filhos Jobim, de 12 anos, e Lilás, de 8) e ‘Garoto de Copacabana’.

Juliana currently has a crowd sourcing project open so she can record her first album.  For more information head to the poziblle site to help her out –>  http://www.pozible.com/project/177913 “A big “thank you” for helping Global Rhythm Pot out! It was wonderful having you in the studio for International Women’s Day. The show was amazing and all the stronger for having such an eclectic and accomplished collection of female musicians in the studio for that impromptu performance of fused French and Brazilian songs was an absolutely privilege. And having you and your band at our Global Rhythm Pot fundraiser in January last year absolutely made the night. You and your barrage of supporters (I know they were they for you because they were all singing along with your songs and dancing!) made the night a complete success. We are so grateful for you voluntary contribution to supporting both the show and the radio station.”

  • “Areias is one of our major assets in terms of Brazilian music and culture in Australia. Bossa nova is her passion and she represents the style not only singing and composing, but she is also a determined Bossa Nova advocate. Hence the fact she is probably one of the most recommended individuals to talk about Brazilian music/culture in Perth.”
VIBEZ BRAZIL 27 FEB 2014 Juliana Areias Raphael Brasil TestemonialAustralia has been the land of numerous international artists that call this country home. Juliana Areias – Brazilian Singer and composer, has chosen Perth as her home for quite some time now, after living nearly a decade in New Zealand. Areias is one of our major assets in terms of Brazilian music and culture in Australia. Bossa nova is her passion and she represents the style not only singing and composing, but she is also a determined Bossa Nova advocate. Hence the fact she is probably one of the most recommended individuals to talk about Brazilian music/culture in Perth.The singer has been very successful in the Perth Jazz scene. Playing alongside, big names, she’s been able to open the space for Brazilian music there, together with other musicians like Marcio Mendes. In other words, she has been one of our channels responsible for the cross-cultural relation between Brazil and Australia through music. Juliana Areias is now campaigning at Pozible in order to record her 1st original album of Contemporary Bossa Nova.Check the link for more info and more than that, support the music made in Australia.

  • ” In my capacity as proprietor of The Ellington Jazz Club – WA’s premier venue for live Jazz performance – I first became aware of Juliana Areas when we booked her for a concert in April 2011. This show was sold-out on the night, and we repeated the concert in June to satisfy audience demand. Since that time Juliana has become one of the Club’s most regular performing artists, with 0ver 15 concerts to her credit.  Juliana’s musical professionalism is exhibited in her approach to each concert, where she builds a new show to explore a particular theme or musical idea. Most recently her concert “Metropolis” explored musical interpretations of Sao Paulo, her home-town in Brazil. In the relatively short time since Juliana arrived in WA in 2009, she has built up a considerable following, and can be consistently be relied upon to draw a good audience on any day of the week. Juliana’s sound is an authentic Brazilian Jazz fusion with a strong element of Bossa Nova tradition. Her mastery of her genre makes her one of very few artists in her area and a real asset to the music industry in WA. Juliana is well-known to the Jazz musician community in WA, and she performs with some of our best musicians, including a number of former students and current teachers from WAAPA. Juliana also recently performed at the Inaugural Perth International Jazz Festival 2013. ” –

  • ” I have known Juliana Areias since March 2009 when, as Program Manager at Kulcha Multicultural Arts I booked her first concert in Western Australia. Since then I have remained in contact with Juliana and followed her work and career with interest. I have attended a number of her performances over that time and have been instrumental in arranging some of her gigs; including Live @ Woodside, a concert at St John of God Hospital, and most recently the “Van Gogh, Dali and Beyond” concert at The Art Gallery of Western Australia as part of the gallery’s 2013 AGWA Night Series in partnership with WAM. Juliana is a fine vocalist and a true asset to the diversity of the Western Australian musical scene. In addition, in all her engagements I have noted that Juliana is consistently professional in her approach. This professionalism extends from her dedication to high-quality musical performance, and also includes attention to the practical aspects of managing, promoting, and producing her shows.”

Juliana Areias – A borderless voice Talent, versatility and determination Translation by Sue Burns Passionately determined to show the richness of Brazilian Music and aiming to unite diverse cultural backgrounds through her art, Juliana Areias (singer/songwriter) is expanding her work throughout Australia. After the success of her  show “Ginga Brazil” at Kulcha –  the Multicultural Arts Centre of Western Australia, Fremantle Festival and Sunset @ Subi Concert Series, singer Juliana Areias has also conquered the Ellington Jazz Club in Perth – one of the most respected Jazz venues of the Australian Music circuit. She first performed there on April 20th, accompanied by some of the best and most versatile musicians in town: guitarist Glenn Rogers, bassist Pete Jeavons, pianist Tal Cohen, drummer Mike Boase and Brazilian percussionist Marcio Mendes. Her repertoire comprises the best of traditional and contemporary Brazilian Music including songs by Tom Jobim, Djavan, Pixinguinha, Chico Buarque, João Bosco, Lenine, Arlindo Cruz, Ceu and also original songs such as “ Mare Cheia “ (Full Tide) and “Flecha de Oxossi” (Oxossi’s Arrow). Juliana explains: “The Ginga Brazil show is inspired by the Brazilian spirit and soul; its ability to reinvent itself is infinite.  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. It is present in the way we walk, dance, talk, sing, play, love, live, face problems, adapt and achieve our dreams. In the show, we go beyond the clichés showing the public the whole spectrum and diversity of Brazilian music and at the same time, encouraging the fusion of Brazilian Ginga with the Australian Ginga because it is the mixture of influences that makes Brazilian music – and music in general –  interesting. ” Juliana was born of a mix of two cities: São Paulo and Salvador. She was born in Avenida Paulista on a Saturday evening during Carnival. Her father composed a samba to celebrate her arrival. During her adolescence, living in Sao Paulo, she began her career as an actress and gained the nickname “Bossa Nova Baby” by the renowned journalist, Ruy Castro, due to her unusual love for bossa. She lived for a few months in Brasilia, and at 17, she purposely went to Salvador to live in the same street where Vinicius de Moraes used to live,  in Itapuã Lighthouse Suburb.  It was there that she first performed as a singer and from then on she’s never looked back. She went to Switzerland and began travelling the world. She performed at events such as Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, Cairo International Song Festival in Egypt as well as the America’s Cup and the Auckland Festival, both held in New Zealand. Juliana Areias says she is happy to bring her music to Australia and enjoys the challenges of being a pioneer: “Compared to other places like Europe, where the Brazilian music market has had a tradition for over 30 years, everything is still new here. I see a great future for Brazilian music here and increasing responsiveness from the public, producers, the Australian media and art lovers.” The next step for Juliana, the singer, is to consolidate her work in Perth and tour other cities in Australia and Asia. She looks forward to producing her new album with original songs, and collaborative works developed along her fabulous life’s journey with musical partners from around the world. The talent and remarkable presence of Juliana attracts partnerships with Brazilian companies established in Australia: the brands; Daniela Collection (Jewellery), Totem (represented by Melko, based in Melbourne), Carmen Steffens and Oi Exchange. In conjunction with her music, Juliana Areias unites her multiple passions. Juliana conducts research and projects relating to the history and music of Brazil. She’s presented seminars throughout Europe, has worked for the University of Auckland as a Brazilian Music Expert and currently writes articles for magazines and her own website, www.julianaareias.com . Juliana still devotes part of her time towards the development of the local Brazilian community, being one of the inspiring, founders and current vice president of the newly formalised Brazil WA – The Brazilian Association of Western Australia Inc. (www.brazilwa.com ). – TESTIMONIAL by Leigh Jarrett | PAN International – Australia,  March 2011

  •  “As the producer of sunset@subi; the City of Subiaco’s free concert series, I was delighted to discover the beautiful and talented Juliana Areias. Juliana’s experience is extensive and shows in her very polished but relaxed performance style. The promise of something special had a large audience turn up to be treated to an afternoon of stunning classic and contemporary bossa, samba, fusions and originals, which had even the most reserved up and dancing and clapping along to the infectious rhythms. Juliana has put together a band of  accomplished and passionate musicians who perfectly compliment Juliana in creating a truly authentic sound and memorable experience.”

So Brazil at the Havaianas Botequim So Brazil Duo (Juliana Areias and Jose Henrique Alves) and guest musician Rick Gonçalves joined a cast of Perth celebrities and entrepreneurs in the launch of the Havaianas Botequim on 16 March 2010, at Cottesloe Beach, in Perth. The event was awesome, as Havaianas decided to launch its version of a Brazilian beach Botequim (a very laid back bar selling drinks and traditional finger food) alongside the Sculptures by the Sea exhibition. So Brazil entertained the guests with a selection of songs that made everybody dance, while the catering service provided extra energy via generous servings of água de côco (coconut juice), pão de queijo (cheese balls) and feijoada (black beans with rice). The event made the social pages of several local newspapers (Below: scan from The West Australian,  “Out & About” in their Style section – 17/3/2010).
