The Perth-based Brazilian singer Juliana Areias’ ‘Bossa Nova Baby’ album, which was recorded and produced in Perth, has charted at #70 in the US Jazz Top 100

Perth singer Juliana Areias was delighted to find out this week that her debut album ‘Bossa Nova Baby’ had charted at #70 on the US Jazz Top 100, following her win of ‘Best Brazilian Music Album’ at the US Focus Brazil Awards earlier this year.

Bossa Nova Baby’ was recorded and produced in Perth with the support of the Western Australian Department of Culture and the Arts, and features some of Australia’s finest musicians, including seven-string guitarist Doug De Vries, bassist, arranger and producer Pete Jeavons, many jazz lecturers from WAAPA, and the late pianist and Perth jazz scene luminary Graham Wood.

Originally from São Paulo, Juliana has lived in Perth since 2007. Growing up in Brazil, Juliana was personally introduced to the Bossa Nova founders by legendary Brazilian Music historian and journalist Ruy Castro, and it was he who nicknamed her ‘Bossa Nova Baby’, which she would go on to use as her album title.

No stranger to international acclaim, Juliana Areias has performed around the world at iconic venues, jazz clubs and festivals such as the Sydney Opera House, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, the Green Room in New York, the Fukiagi Hall in Japan, the Auckland Festival in New Zealand and the Beco des Garrafas in Rio de Janeiro, but she still calls Perth home.

When she isn’t touring the globe, Juliana performs regularly at Perth’s own iconic jazz club, The Ellington Jazz Club. You can catch her there on November 2 and at the Fremantle Arts Center on December 29.
