A show tribute to Graham Wood

A red rose on the piano. A special night at the Ellington Jazz Club. Bossa Nova Baby Show Tribute to Graham Wood’s life, talent and legacy. Thank you everyone for being part of it last night. With love from all of us.

This week on Wednesday 19th July,  Perth lost Graham Wood, great pianist, academic, co-owner of The Ellington Jazz Club and founder of The Perth International jazz Festival. My condolences to the family, Alex, the kids… May Graham be with his beautiful mother Stella and his father… May Graham always be with us through his music and all that he has created to make a difference.

Of course the show Juliana Areias – Bossa Nova Baby at the Ellington this Friday 21st, could not be a regular one, but also a tribute to Graham’s amazing legacy…

Without Graham, the Bossa Nova Baby album would not sound the same. Without Graham, there would be no Ellington Jazz Club, no Perth International Jazz Festival… It was even Graham who introduced me and recommended the talented young pianist Shai Martin who  performed and shared the Ellington stage with us this Friday… Without Graham all the pianists and jazz students from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) would not be the same… Jazz would not be the same, Perth and Australia would not be the same…

You never know how you feel about death until it strikes…

RIP, Graham… Eternal life to your music, creations and legacy… With love from all of us…

Brazilian tour – After Sao Paulo and Rio, Juliana Areias arrives in Salvador


3-jam-do-mam-juliana-areias-bossa-nova-baby-7-jan-2017-img_9360Juliana Areias chega a Salvador para agitar a

JAM no MAM

Depois de encantar público e crítica em São Paulo e Rio, cantora e compositora radicada em Perth, na Austrália, apresenta as canções de seu álbum de estreia “Bossa Nova Baby” para os soteropolitanos, no dia 7 de janeiro

2-jam-no-mam-juliana-areias-bossa-nova-baby-7-jan-2017-img_936702 de janeiro de 2017 – Ano novo, artista nova, oportunidade excelente para quem mora em Salvador e para quem está curtindo a cidade conhecer o trabalho de Juliana Areias, cantora e compositora, que veio da Austrália lançar seu disco “Bossa Nova Baby, estourado nas rádios por lá, e indicado a “Melhor Álbum do Ano”.

1-jam-no-mam-juliana-areias-bossa-nova-baby-7-jan-2017-img_9381-geleia-solar-ivan-huol-ivan-bastos-felipe-guedes-marcelo-galter-rowney-scott-joatan-nascimento-gabi-guedesVai ser muito gostoso cantar em Salvador porque foi aí que dei meus primeiros passos como cantora, nas areias do Farol de Itapuã, em 1993. Muito emocionante me apresentar pela primeira vez na JAM no MAM, que sempre foi meu point favorito na cidade, desde essa época”, conta empolgada Ju Areias.

O evento escolhido pela artista para este retorno às origens não poderia ser melhor. A JAM no MAM é o projeto que leva aos finais de semana do Museu de Arte Moderna de Salvador uma trilha sonora especial, baseada no melhor estilo das jam sessions. O local tem uma das mais belas vistas da cidade e é ponto de encontro garantido de músicos locais, além de atrair artistas de todo o mundo que, de passagem pela Bahia, encontram ali um espaço democrático para ouvir jazz com “sotaque baiano” e exercitar a arte da improvisação ao lado da banda Geleia Solar — antiga Banda JAM no MAM, que estreia seu novo nome brincando com a tradução de “jam” (“geleia”, em inglês) e com o Solar do Unhão e o clima de pôr- do-sol que caracteriza as sessões musicais em Salvador. A banda é atualmente formada por André Becker, Bruno Aranha, Felipe Guedes, Gabi Guedes, Ivan Bastos, Ivan Huol, Joatan Nascimento, Matias Traut, Paulo Mutti e Rowney Scott.

Juliana Areias irá apresentar algumas de suas 12 composições, que trazem um quê de samba, jazz, funk americano, tango, choro, pop e, claro, muita bossa. Seu primeiro álbum, “Bossa Nova Baby”, conta com participação dos melhores músicos de jazz de Perth, onde mora, e foi produzido com apoio conseguido via crowdfunding, além do patrocínio do Departamento de Cultura e Arte da Austrália. Entre os destaques do disco “Flecha” e “Maré Cheia”, finalistas na categoria Melhor Canção do Ano, no prêmio australiano WAM SOTY 2015.

“‘Maré Cheia’ foi composta em parceria com Johannes Dimyadi, violonista indonesiano, radicado na Nova Zelândia. É uma canção cheia de balanço, que cheira a mar e verão. Conta a história de um pescador e uma sereia se preparando para um encontro. Vale a pena assistir ao “Lyrics video”, um stop motion com a letra da música sendo lavada pelo mar da praia de Cottesloe, cartão postal de Perth. Tem participação da Lilás, minha filha”, explica a artista.

CAIRNS LIFE MAGAZINE FEATURE ARTICLE – JULIANA AREIAS

MAY 2016 EDITION

by Dina Amin

Cairnslife Magazine May 2016 Juliana Areias 1Calling all jazz and Bossa Nova aficionados, Perth-based singer Juliana Areias will be heading up north in June for a very special and intimate performance as part of the 2016 Jazz Up North Series at Tanks Arts Centre. Brazilian-born Juliana has an ardent passion for her musical heritage. Her performances are a manifestation of her love for Bossa Nova, Samba, Tango and jazz, each composed as a dialogue between traditional and contemporary forms.

The effervescent songstress is looking forward to bringing her unique style to North Queensland for her first ever performance at Tanks. “Brazilian music is my passion, my cultural identity, my artistic language and the gift I can share with the world,” she enthuses. “My friend – the singer Tara Tiba – has performed at Tanks Arts Centre before and told me that it was one of the best venues she has performed at in Australia. I cannot wait to experience it!”

The performance will provide Juliana with the opportunity to showcase music from her debut album Bossa Nova Baby, a melting pot of Brazilian jazz that has been earning her rave reviews. “It features 12 songs co-written with superb musicians around the globe,” says Juliana. “It was arranged, produced and performed by some of the best jazz musicians in Perth and Melbourne, including Pete Jeavons, Doug De Vries, Graham Wood, Ray Walker, Paul Millard, Marcio Mendes, Chris Tarr and Cathie Travers.”

The album has been embraced by audiences and even featured on national radio, which has meant a great deal to Juliana, validating her attempts to universalise Brazilian music and make it more accessible to Australian audiences. Since moving to Perth – after years of living in New Zealand and Europe – she has been determined to integrate Brazilian jazz into the Aussie psyche, something she has not only been succeeding with, but also making impressive impressions on fans and critics alike.

The main difference between Australian and European audiences is that European audiences have been exposed to Brazilian Jazz for decades,” explains Juliana. “In New Zealand and Australia, Brazilian jazz is still quite new. Australian audiences are similarly appreciative though, extremely receptive and keen to discover what it is all about…I couldn’t be happier performing to audiences here and with the support of the Australian music industry as well.”

Juliana’s upcoming Cairns’ show will feature original music from her debut Bossa Nova Baby, plus contemporary arrangements of Latin jazz standards. She will be joined by her band, a selection of inspired jazz musicians, including young pianist Shai Martin  and legendary guitarist Ray Walker.

Don’t miss out when Juliana Areias performs for one night only at Tanks Arts Centre on Friday 3rd June as part of the Jazz Up North Series. Tickets are on sale now through Ticketlink.
