Juliana Areias Live in Sydney at Foundry 616 Jazz Club – April 6th

Hello Sydney! The Bossa Nova Baby is coming down your way! One night only at Foundry 616 Jazz Club.

After enthralling audiences across the USA, Japan and Europe, Juliana Areias, globally acclaimed as the “Bossa Nova Baby”, come to Sydney for one night only at Foundry 616.

Bossa Nova is more alive than ever with the voice and groove of Brazilian singer-songwriter Juliana Areias. Dubbed the ‘Bossa Nova Baby’, this Perth-based Brazilian singer-songwriter and multiple award finalist, brings a new edge to traditional Brazilian rhythms – creating a contemporary Latin Jazz musical fusion which is taking the Australian and the International music scene by storm.

Juliana Areias Concert features the original songs of her Bossa Nova Baby album as well as exclusive arrangements of bossa and samba hits such as “Mas que Nada”, “Water of March”and “The Girl from Ipanema”.

The Bossa Nova Baby is super excited to share the stage with this fantastic line up of Sydney based musicians: Pedro Licio, pianist Rodric White, saxophinst/flutist Glenn Henrich, bassit Stan Valacos drummer Andrew Dickeson and very special guests from Sydney Choro Club – flautist Sara Müller, accordionist Lukas Maio, seven string guitarist Pedro Licio, bassist George Machado and percussionist Douglas Aguiar (playing Brazil’s luxurious tambourine called pandeiro).

Juliana was personally introduced to the Bossa Nova founders when she was a teenager by legendary Brazilian Music historian and journalist Ruy Castro who also named her “The Bossa Nova Baby”. This direct learning and unique experience have inspired her to become a professional singer and songwriter.

Juliana Areias has performed on celebrated stages around the world 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 Fukiagi Hall in Japan, the Auckland Festival in New Zealand, the legendary Beco das Garrafas in Rio de Janeiro and at Darling Harbour performing for over 30.000 people.

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, Bill Nutt. – USA

– “Rhythmically perfect and passionate vocal delivery” – Jazz and Beyond , The Australian, John McBeath.

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

Ginga Brazil Concert Review and what’s next.

The Ginga Brazil Concert at Kulcha, the Multicultural Arts Centre of Western, was a great success.

In a quartet format, Juliana Areias (voice), Glenn Rogers (guitar), Adam Springhetti (double bass) and Marcio Mendes (percussion) had the pleasure to perform to a great and attentive public of Brazilian Music lovers on the 23 July. Their sophisticated repertoire included songs by Tom Jobim, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Joao Bosco, Ivan Lins, Djavan, Joyce and Lenine; among others composers.

Their innovative arrangement for “Carinhoso” (by Pixinguinha) demonstrated how a melodic choro can also become a pulsing baiao. 

The public cheered with excitement and enthusiasm the 3 original tunes of the concert: “Mare Cheia” (Johannes Dimyadi/ Juliana Areias); “Relaxa” (Adam Springhetti/Juliana Areias) and “Flecha de Oxossi” (Glenn Rogers/Juliana Areias) – where the genuineness of the cuica sound transported everyone to the mystical dimension of samba.

At the end of the concert, the public were still keen to listening to the performers’ music for much longer.  Many people have also inquired about CDs for sale. However it is not available yet, the next goal of the project is to record it. Therefore, keep your eyes and ears at www.julianaareias.com to be the first ones to know about it.

Seasoning the night, Brazilian Zest provided a delicious platter of typical Brazilian finger foods: pao de queijo ( Cheesebuddy), kibe, coxinha and risoles. (See the upcoming gigs page to find out about the new Brazilian Zest Jazz Club with Juliana Areias and guests starting from Fri 27 August).

“It was a stunning and magical night of Brazilians and Aussies creating music and celebrating cultural diversity together. A ruge thank to Kulcha  and  “gros merci”  to Bruno, ( Kulcha’s sound engineer of the night). Thank so much to all involved in this production (from musicians to sponsors), to all present in the concert and to all friends from near and far. Thank you for being part of it. Obrigadao!”. – says Juliana Areias.
