–  “We celebrate the changing face of Australian music with Brazilian-born, Perth based singer Juliana’s excellent, Bossa Nova-centred album.” – ABC Radio National – Daily Planet – Lucky Oceans.
 
– “The toast of the Perth Jazz Scene. The release of Bossa Nova Baby has elevated her above a mere covers singer or bossa specialist.

Juliana Areias – Jazz Brazil Show and Tour

Thursday 20 September – 8pm @ The Ellington Jazz Club– (191 Beaufort St – Perth. Ph: 92281088)   SOLD OUT

Spring comes in full swing for Perth’s Brazilian Singer Juliana Areias. In between a performance to  an expected crowd of 30,000 in Sydney and before hitting the road again for a debut appearance in Adelaide, Juliana returns to The Ellington Jazz Club with her new Jazz Brazil Show on September 20.

As the name suggests , the concert showcases Juliana’s singular sense of rhythm, authentic musicality and interpretation of bossa & samba classics, meeting contemporary Brazilian Popular Music & original favorites, in an explicit jazz format, context and perspective.

The audience is invited to join this dynamic synergy created by the encounter of these two syncopated musical  universes, so harmoniously dissonant, amalgamated & contrasting , intuitive & precise at the same time.

Ritmo Festival Sydney 2012

On board with Juliana Areias in this sensuous musical adventure, are some of the most actually impressive and sought-after Australian talents: pianist Tal Cohen, drummer Bronton Ainsworth and bassist Robin Murray. And to make this an even more stunning evening, Juliana is thrilled to announce singer Shameem Taheri-Lee as her special guest, sharing their music, inspirations and the stage for the first time.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a show baked with the perfect fusion of jazz harmony, beautiful melodies floating on top, fantastic and exclusive rhythm, very sensual language singing sound, diversity of intrinsic talents and a passionate stage presence.

Juliana Areias has lived for many years in Europe (Switzerland) and New Zealand prior to moving to Australia. Always working in the music circuit, her career includes performances at major international events such as the revered Montreau Jazz Festival.
