Hoist the colours high and set your imagination free. Perth’s own award winning Brazilian singer-songwriter – Juliana Areias, the “Bossa Nova Baby”, invites you on a new musical voyage.

The Oceano concert will feature songs about the seven seas, iconic beaches, mythic creatures, lost treasures and magic tales of Neptune, Poseidon, Yemanja, sirens, mermaids, pirates, fish-men, African slave ships and Atlantis’s mysteries.

Dive into Brazil’s most evocative rhythms  – bossa, samba, baiao, afoxe, maracatu, and samba-jazz fusions – featuring fresh arrangement of classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema” and “Beyond the Sea” (“La Mer”) as well as alluring songs by iconic Brazilian artists such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Djavan, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Alceu Valença, Tim Maia, Maria Gadu, Marina, Lenine, Lulu Santos, Marisa Montes, Ceu, Chico Buarque and Edu Lobo.

The concert will also reference Christiane Anu’s iconic rendition of Warumpi Band’s Australian song “My Island Home” and UK artists who influenced Juliana Areias when she lived in Europe during the 90’s – David Byrne’s record with Caetano Veloso “Dreamworld – Red Hot” (1998) and Smoke City’s record “Underwater Love” (1997) – as well as Madonna’s 1989 hit “Cherish” which includes a line from 1966 “Cherish” by California band “The Association”.

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: Joshua de Silva (guitar), Tommi Flamenco (bass), Francisco Javier Muñoz (drums) and Rafael Medeiros de Souza (percussion).

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. 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.

–“The idea of mixing styles and cultures is reflected in Areias’ life and her music.”, Daily Record – USA

–“Rhythmically perfect and passionate vocal delivery. The toast of the Perth Jazz Scene. The release of Bossa Nova Baby has elevated her above a mere covers singer or bossa specialist. The singer excels in an elegant co-composed duet (Belas Artes) with Australia’s finest Brazilian-oriented 7-string guitarist, Doug de Vries” – The Australian

–“We celebrate the changing face of Australian music with Brazilian-born, Perth based singer Juliana’s excellent, Bossa Nova-centred album.” – ABC Radio National

–“It’s bossa that plays soccer with Jazz – as it has since the 60’s – and scoring a goal.” – O GLOBO – Brazil

–”A wonderful Brazilian-Australian bossa nova baby with contemporary bossa nova songs.“– Key and Chords – Belgium

Juliana Areias – True Live Concert – Back in action – Perth Sat 15 Aug 2020

Juliana Areias – True Live Concert

Saturday 15 August 7.00pm @ The Ellington Jazz Club – Perth, Australia – BOOK NOW

After her “All That Samba” tour of Singapore and Australia, completed just before the epidemic lockdown,  Perth’s own Brazilian singer-songwriter Juliana Areias, the “Bossa Nova Baby” is glad to be back on stage to present her “True Live” Concert!

“True Live” will showcase the songs that inspired Juliana to keep her sanity, hope, and joy during the fearful pandemic period. She will pay tribute to the iconic Brazilian songwriter Aldir Blanc – who died of Covid -19 on May 4th. Aldir’s unforgettable sambas were co-composed and recorded by some of Brazil’s best artists such as Elis Regina, Joao Bosco, Guinga and  Moacyr Luz.

The concert will also reflect on Juliana’s Brazilian-Australian-Kiwi-World Citizen identity and how we all can feel related to the Black Lives Matter movement through the joyful and powerful songs of Afro-Brazillian composers such as Gilberto Gil, Djavan, Milton Nascimento, Carlinhos Brown, Luiz Melodia, Ale Kali and Luedji Luna. Juliana, originally from Sao Paulo City, has always been passionate in exploring her European, African and Indigenous roots. Juliana will also touch on her connection with Bahia, the most African State of Brazil, where she lived prior to moving to Switzerland, New Zealand and Australia.  Above all, this concert will celebrate the rich mixture of humanity, the joy of being alive, and the life-changing contributions made by music and musicians.

Juliana Areias is looking forward to performing again with her band of dear friends and incredible musicians – showcasing the amazing talent and cultural diversity we are so lucky to have in Perth: Paul Millard – sax/flute, Joshua de Silva – guitar, Tommi Flamenco – bass, Bronton Ainsworth – drums and special guests: percussionists Rafael Medeiro de Souza and Lee Coumbe along with samba de gafieira and forro dance teachers Ana Lucia Pereira Silva and Sarah Quinn – co-founders of “Let The Dance Speak”

Her debut original album “Bossa Nova Baby” won “Best Brazilian Album” at the US Focus Brazil Awards in 2019 and spent five weeks in the US Jazz Top 100 .

Sampa – identity, love, hate, misunderstanding and transformation

https://youtu.be/Hh_xWPoP5no

Two Brazilian artists and world citizens born in São Paulo City travelled from New York City and Perth, Western Australia to perform together this song about their birth city, São Paulo, nicknamed “Sampa”, the largest city in the South Hemisphere and the economic centre of Latin America – the “city that never sleeps”and always attracts ambitious and dreaming new immigrants. São Paulo is also the epicentre of the Covid 19 Pandemic in Brazil in 2020.

Sampa, the song composed by Caetano Veloso talks about identity, love, hate, misunderstanding and transformation.

Today, 12 June 2020 it is Loving Day in Brazil, in the same week of the birthdays of Joao Gilberto (the creator of Bossa Nova) and Guinga (Contemporary Choro and baião fusion Composer) – both born on 10/12.

Having all these symbols in mind and trying to make sense of Brazil and the World in this moment of so many deaths and so much confusion and despair, it feels to me that Sampa translates well all these feelings of love, hate, misunderstanding and searching for transformation and a new identity.

May we be able to transform and evolve.

“When we were face to face I didn’t recognised myself.

I called what I saw distasteful, distasteful, distasteful.

For Narcissus thinks that what is not a mirrow is ugly.

And what is not yet old scares the mind

Nothing like it was before, we find hard to transform.

In this difficult start

I push away what I don’t understand

And who comes from a different dream of a happy city – learns very quickly to called it reality.

For you are the inversion of the inversion of the inversion of the inversion.”

Caetano Veloso

All That Samba YouTube Playlist – Keeping alive and searching for meaning

Hello beloved people around the planet… Since Mid March you have not heard much about music from me, but much more about my political journey … Thank you for caring, for listening… You know who you are…

Each one of us is coping the best (or worse) we can with these multiple global crises… Most of the time I have been feeling in fear, lost, depressed, worried, guilty, overwhelmed, drained, paralysed… finding very hard to be my “normal positive self”, with all tragedies around… searching for perspective, meaning in every view, every news, every day, every challenge… Dealing with survival, life threatening and death in the family and of friends.

Brazil’s out of control situation particularly has created even a serious identity crisis… Is the Brazil I represent with my art still current? This colourful country with friendly and talented people capable to face any challenge with creativity and joy? Or has Brazil become just a country of brutality and hypocrisy? How to keep singing the beauty of a country that is dying, is killing itself?

I have no answers yet, but I can see that I am not the only one feeling like this… And, ironically, this seams to be the only way I can feel some hope for Brazil, for humanity, for the planet, for the future, for my art…

Since I am not feeling strong, I am not yet capable to smile and produce “lives” as requested by some people I love … But I am finally very slowly uploading a playlist on my YouTube channel with live performances from my most recent All That Samba Tour around Australia and Singapore which we were lucky to be able to finish in mid March 2020… Only three months ago,but it feels like it was another life… There are about 15 news videos there and I will keep uploading more slowly… when I find energy to do so… I hope it can bring us some hope, light and joy…

Keep looking after yourselves and helping others anyway you can…

With love , Ju
