Metropolis show – the whole world in one single city

Juliana Areias - Metropolis show at the Ellington 13 July 2013Saturday 13th of July, 7pm at the Ellington Jazz Club – Book now

Metropolis Juliana Areias gig 3 by Lisa Cocks 13 July 2013Juliana Areias – who is an unconditional fan of Jobim and also originally from Sao Paulo – expresses her pride for her home city in this new concert “Metropolis” which celebrates “paulista” artists and musicians and their love for what was known in the words of Eduardo Gudin in the song “Paulista”, “the whole world in one single city.”

Metropolis Juliana Areias and Marcio Mendes  Lisa Cocks 13 July 2013Sao Paulo is a melting pot of cultures that makes it a vibrant metropolis. Amidst what some call the “urban jungle” and the chaotic lights of intense traffic, Sao Paulo also hides positive political effervescence and artistic expressions of all sorts. In a country where the amazing landscape is not a privilege of the “paulistas” (people originally from the State of Sao Paulo), it is not uncommon to see a slight glimpse of jealousy of “paulistas” in regards to the “cariocas” who are the “owners” of the iconic Brazilian postcard views of the Corcovado, Metropolis gig 4 Juliana Areias Marcio Mendes Ben Vanderwal Lisa Cocks 13 July 2013Christ Redeemer and the Sugar Loaf. – Sung and acclaimed by many overseas in the tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim.

Like many large cities in the world, Sao Paulo ranks as the 5th largest with a total population of 27 million people and its cultural richness comes from the mix with the various migrants that “paulistas” are very proud of. Italians, Lebanese, Japanese, Koreans, South Americans and many others are responsible in a way for the poetry and the lyricism of the Sao Paulo tunes.

Metropolis gig 2 Juliana Areias Ben Vanderwal Adam Springuetti Lisa Cocks 13 July 2013With the protests that emerged in Brazil in June, having started in Sao Paulo, the eyes of the world left the beauty of Brazil’s famous landscapes from Rio to notice Sao Paulo. With that, “paulistas” around the world revisited their love and hate for their city. In “Metropolis”, Juliana Areias will sing the beauties of Sao Paulo remembering the amazing artistic and cultural landscape that no other city in Brazil can offer. Inspired in parts by the content of the project “Pump my carroça” the singer will voice out her pride in being from Sao Paulo through songs that show that where there is art, there can be love for a city that also nurtures romance and social change.

Paulista Avenue Avenida Paulista by Juliana AreiasJuliana Areias, Marcio Mendes, Ben Vanderwall, Adam Springhetti and special guests will present a repertoire featuring songs such as “Sampa”, a northeastern read on Sao Paulo; “Trem das onze”, a light hearted samba classic that reflects the day to day of the outskirts of Sao Paulo in the 60’s, especially the Italian migrants from Barra Funda and Bras; Familia gangster ska (Rap), “Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo” – a Brazilian parody of “New York, New York” from the band Premeditando o breque and songs from contemporary paulista artists such as Ceu. “When I think about Sao Paulo, I think about this sarcastic humour which I believe is one of the best humour of Brazil such as Rita Lee,  Titans, Ultraje a rigor, Mamonas Assassinas. These are the elements that I would like to bring to this show.”, says Juliana Areias.
