“Great, very personal, full of passion, beautiful, natural” – it’s how the audience describes her performance.
After the success of her latest concerts at the Fremantle Festival, Sunset @ Subi and her premiere night at the Ellington, Juliana was back at the Ellington with her authentic Brazilian voice, great stage presence, groove and charisma on 8 June.
The audience rolled up for a stunning night of classic and contemporary bossa, samba, fusions, originals and improvisations featuring some of Perth’s most versatile musicians: guitarist Glenn Rogers, bassist Matt Bell and drummer Michael Boase – creating a new ‘Ginga’.
Ginga Brazil Concert repertoire embraced several shades of the Brazilian music spectrum and its resonance upon jazz and other international musical styles. Performing compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Pixinguinha, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Joao Bosco, Ivan Lins, Djavan, Joyce, Ceu, Lenine and Arlindo Cruz; the concert also brough original tunes composed by Juliana with local and international music partners around the world.
