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.
