Let’s face it. Perth is great! It is time to celebrate it!

In between her USA and Japan tours, Juliana Areias is glad to be back home in Perth, Western Australia, celebrating the amazing original music and unique creative community of Perth.

“The greatest cultural lesson I have learned in America, was how much Americans embrace and celebrate their own culture and the arts, making ordinary life extraordinary. Let’s face it,  Perth has some of the best beaches of this planet, mesmerasing sky, trees, birds, friendly people, clean-safe-traffic free streets, a blessed life style and an amazing creative community exporting world class music, fine-art, films…  No more understatements, please. It is time we celebrate how lucky we are to be able to live and produce culture and arts here.  Perth is not just okay. Perth is great! Perth is wonderful! I love Perth! I am in love with Perth… I have always been… but now, even more than ever!I am so proud of calling Perth home and being part of this diverse and dynamic artistic scene. Let’s face the music and dance.”

In this spirit, after her “welcome back home” performances at the City of Perth’s Winter Festival (25/7) – Winter Sounds, celebrating the original music of Western Australia, produced by WAM ( Western Australia Music) and at the Ellington Jazz Club (28/7); Juliana Areias annouces her participation and support for the “Brazil V Australia Capoeira Fundraiser Gig”  at the Rosemount Hotel on Sunday 26th August 2018 featuring an ecletic line-up  from pop ballades, bossa, samba, capoeira to funk performers:

Renata Fantoches (4pm); Helen Townsend (4.45pm); Constanza Herrero (5.30pm); Belle Harvey & Band (6.15-6.45pm), Capoeira show (7-7.15pm);  Juliana Areias (7.30-8pm – with Joshua de Silva – guitar and Rafael Souza – pandeiro); Randa And The Soul Kingdom (8.15pm-9pm), Brazilian DJ (9-10pm).

“Perth’s great music scene gets together to support a genuine school dedicated to teach kids and adults the art of Capoeira, the Brazilian martial art which is more than a self defence fight, it is the expression of dance, music, culture and resistance created by our African slave ancestors which now is admired all around the world. My kids – now teenagers – were among the first children to learn Capoeira at this school and it is such a pleasure to see every year more people discovering and falling in love with it. Come this Sunday to experienceo a watercolour of sounds and how beautiful, fun and powerful Capoeira is. Facebook event : Brazil V Australia Capoeira Fundraiser Gig” – invites Juliana.

Awakening: the Brazilian Experience concert with Juliana Areias

Brazilian Flag Change Brazil no Left no right forward Juliana AreiasThe City of Perth presents Juliana Areias –  Brazilian Experience show this Sunday 23 June 2-3pm at the heart of the City, as part of the Sunday Piazza Live Series  at the Northbridge Piazza ( corner of Lake St and James St).
When the concert was booked and nicknamed by the City of Perth more than 9 months ago to provide the audience with a stunning afternoon of classic and contemporary bossa, samba, fusion, originals and improvisations of Brazilian music –  nobody could have anticipated what would be happening in Brazil right now.
Since the 13th of June, social media networks have flooded with news about protests which started with the complaints about the rise of the bus ticket and have escalated to a horizontal and independent Brazilian movement claiming for general improvement of Brazil as a nation – with less corruption, less violence, more public health, access to education. Brazilians around the world have joined the cause and in more than 25 countries scheduled peaceful gatherings to express their solidarity and support to what has received an international nickname “#changebrazil”. In times when Brazil is in the limelight due to the World Cup and the Olympics, the Brazilian community in Australia has also decided to show that there is no apathy here. Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast have organised peaceful marches for this week called Brazilian Awakening.
Here in Perth, it is no different. The Brazilian Awakening mindset will come with the audience of Juliana Areias free concert and they will sing along with their hearts to express through art and music their solidarity and love for their home country under the beautiful Perth sky.
 As one of the  Brazilian culture Ambassadors in Australia, it is no coincidence that Juliana Areias supports the peaceful and artistic expression in Perth, as Juliana herself as a teenager and student happened to be part of the 1992 political  march led by the youth in Brasilia in 1992, later known as the “Caras Pintada” movement, and which culminated with the impeachment of the president Collor.
Wake up to sing with us. I hope you enjoy the experience…for a #change.
Sunday 23 June 2013 – 2-3pm @ The Northbridge Piazza ( crn Lake St and James St) Free event.. See Map
Band line up: Juliana Areias ( lead vocal), Marcio Mendes ( vocal/percussion/guitar), Adam Springuetti (bass), Tal Cohen ( keyboard) and Ben Vanderwal ( drums).
