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”

Juliana Areias is an award-winning Brazilian Singer-Songwriter. 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 . Juliana has been nominated five times for Western Australian Music Awards including Best World Music Act and Best Song. Dubbed the “Bossa Nova Baby” by iconic Brazilian journalist Ruy Castro, Juliana has performed across Europe, USA, Japan, Latin America and Australia – including shows at the Sydney Opera House,  Montreux Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott’s in London, the Green Room in New York, Fukiagi Hall in Japan, Auckland Festival, and Beco das Garrafas in Rio de Janeiro. 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

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

Juliana Areias & Co – Bahia of All Rhythms Concert feat. Quentin Thony

Fri 29 March – Juliana Areias & Co – Bahia of all rhythms Concert @ The Ellington Jazz Club – PERTH – 7pm  – SOLDOUT

After the success of her USA and Japan tours in 2018, Perth-based Brazilian singer-songwriter Juliana Areias, the “Bossa Nova Baby”, is back at the Ellington Jazz Club. Juliana invites you on a musical voyage to Bahia, the “bay of all rhythms”. On this journey you will discover the origins of many of Brazil’s most significant musical movements: Samba, Bossa-Nova, and Tropicalia, as well as the Afro-Bahia fusions of Samba-de-Roda, Capoeira, Afoxe, Samba-Reggae and Carnaval.

In the late 90s Juliana Areias lived in Salvador, Bahia’s capital and also the first capital of Brazil. Salvador is the Brazil’s most African city, where colourful big drums are played in the streets and ladies still dress in the traditional African clothes made famous by the 1940s Hollywood star Carmen Miranda.

The Bahia of all rhythms concert will feature magic songs about the heavenly beach of Itapuan, (where Juliana used to live and started her singing career); mythic creatures such as Yemanja, the Afro-Brazilian Goddess of the Sea; African slave cultural contributions and the happiness of the Carnaval of Bahia. Juliana Areias will perform iconic bossa and afro-sambas composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Baden Powell and Ary Barroso – to delicious tunes from Bahian artists such as Joao Gilberto (creator of Bossa Nova), Dorival Caymmi, Assis Valente, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, Olodum, A Cor do Som, Novos Baianos, Roberto Mendes, Jorge Portugal and Raul Seixas as well as a few originals from Juliana’s internationally-acclaimed Bossa Nova Baby album.

For this exceptionally colourful concert, Juliana Areias has assembled a very special line-up of musicians and special guests – showcasing the amazing talent and cultural diversity we are so lucky to have in Perth:

  • Paul Millard, – Australian Saxophonist, flautist (Leader of Straight Ahead Big Band);

  • Joshua de Silva – Australian/Srilankan guitarist and singer;

  • Arvis del Vedado – Cuban bassist and singer ( leader of De Cuba Son Band);

  • Filippe Rimis – Brazilian drummer

    And special guests:

  • Quentin Thony – Reunion Island singer (leader of Soukouss Internationale Band)

  • Rafael Medeiros – Brazilian percussionist

  • Ourico – Lee Coumbe – Australian percussionist and Capoeira teacher (leader of Cdo-Perth Capoeira Group)

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 feel spellbound by the Bossa Nova Baby, Juliana Areias.

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

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.
