Hoist the colours high and set your imagination free. Perth’s own Brazilian singer-songwriter and recent winner of the USA Focus Brasil Music Award – Juliana Areias, the “Bossa Nova Baby”, invites you on a musical voyage to the tropical waters of her “Oceanos” Concert.

This alluring concert will embrace some of Brazil’s most evocative rhythms and fusions – bossa, samba, baiao, afoxe, maracatu, samba-jazz, samba-funk, samba-rock, samba-reggae – featuring many celebrated composers and interpreters as well as few songs from Juliana Areias’s award-winning album “Bossa Nova Baby”. From fresh arrangements of bossa, samba and swing classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema”, “Mas que nada” and “Beyond the Sea” (“La Mer”) to contemporary iconic Brazilian artists – Antonio Carlos Jobim, Roberto Menescal, Djavan, Tim Maia, Lenine, Maria Gadu, Lulu Santos, Marisa Montes, Marina, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Ceu, Chico Buarque and Edu Lobo. – the Oceano concert will make your heart beat stronger and your mind fly high.

The concert will also reference Christiane Anu’s iconic rendition of Warumpi Band’s Australian song “My Island Home” (1987/1995) and UK artists who influenced Juliana Areias when she lived in Europe during the 90’s – David Byrne’s recording with Caetano Veloso “Dreamworld – Red Hot” (1998), Smoke City’s song “Underwater Love” (1997) and Madonna’s 1989 hit “Cherish” which includes a line from 1966 “Cherish” by California band “The Association”.

Aboard with Juliana for this maritime excursion are her captains of groove, showcasing the amazing talent and cultural diversity we are so lucky to have in Perth:

– Joshua de Silva – Australian/Srilankan guitarist and singer;

– Adam Springuetti – Australian/Italian bassist and multi- instrumentalist (member of Adam Hall and James Flynn’s bands).

Now it is your turn to feel alive and spellbound by the Bossa Nova Baby, Juliana Areias.

– “It’s bossa that plays soccer with Jazz – as it has since the 60’s – and scoring a goal. Bossa Nova Baby” is a welcome surprise of great Brazilian music, made far away.” – O GLOBO– Brazil– Antonio Carlos Miguel – Music critic and judge member of the Latin Grammy Award.

– “The idea of mixing styles and cultures is reflected in Areias’ life and her music” – Daily Record, USA – Bill Nutt

After the success of her USA and Japan tours in 2018, Perth-based Brazilian singer-songwriter Juliana Areias, the “Bossa Nova Baby”, is back at the Ellington Jazz Club.

The Bahia of all rhythms concert will feature magic songs about the heavenly beach of Itapuan, (where Juliana used to live and started her singing career); mythic creatures such as Yemanja, the Afro-Brazilian Goddess of the Sea; African slave cultural contributions and the happiness of the Carnaval of Bahia. Juliana Areias will perform iconic bossa and afro-sambas composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Baden Powell and Ary Barroso – to delicious tunes from Bahian artists such as Joao Gilberto (creator of Bossa Nova), Dorival Caymmi, Assis Valente, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, Olodum, A Cor do Som, Novos Baianos, Roberto Mendes, Jorge Portugal and Raul Seixas as well as a few originals from Juliana’s internationally-acclaimed Bossa Nova Baby album.

For this exceptionally colourful concert, Juliana Areias has assembled a very special line-up of musicians and special guests – showcasing the amazing talent and cultural diversity we are so lucky to have in Perth:

  • Paul Millard, – Australian Saxophonist, flautist (Leader of Straight Ahead Big Band);
