Juliana Areias & Co – Bahia of All Rhythms Concert feat. Quentin Thony

Fri 29 March – Juliana Areias & Co – Bahia of all rhythms Concert @ The Ellington Jazz Club – PERTH – 7pm  – feat.  Special guest singer Quentin Thony. Book Now

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. Juliana invites you on a musical voyage to Bahia, the “bay of all rhythms”. On this journey you will discover the origins of many of Brazil’s most significant musical movements: Samba, Bossa-Nova, and Tropicalia, as well as the Afro-Bahia fusions of Samba-de-Roda, Capoeira, Afoxe, Samba-Reggae and Carnaval.

In the late 90s Juliana Areias lived in Salvador, Bahia’s capital and also the first capital of Brazil. Salvador is the Brazil’s most African city, where colourful big drums are played in the streets and ladies still dress in the traditional African clothes made famous by the 1940s Hollywood star Carmen Miranda.

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);

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

  • Arvis del Vedado – Cuban bassist and singer ( leader of De Cuba Son Band);

  • Filippe Rimis – Brazilian drummer

    And special guests:

  • Quentin Thony – Reunion Island singer (leader of Soukouss Internationale Band)

  • Rafael Medeiros – Brazilian percussionist

  • Ourico – Lee Coumbe – Australian percussionist and Capoeira teacher (leader of Cdo-Perth Capoeira Group)

Juliana Areias has performed on major stages internationally including the Sydney Opera House, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, the Green Room in New York, the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Auckland Festival in New Zealand and the legendary Beco das Garrafas in Rio de Janeiro.

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

– “The toast of the Perth Jazz Scene. The release of Bossa Nova Baby has elevated her above a mere covers singer or bossa specialist. The singer excels in an elegant co-composed duet (Belas Artes) with Australia’s finest Brazilian-oriented 7-string guitarist, Doug de Vries”.– The Australian – Tony Hillier

– “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

It has always been my dream to visit and perform in Japan. I am very excited to present the contemporary songs of the Bossa Nova Baby album paying tribute to the 60 years of Bossa Nova and showing its evolution at the same time. It will be a magical artistic encounter of 3 nations -Japan, Brazil and Australia – sharing our common language: our the love for music and bossa nova.” – tells Juliana Areias.

Before moving to Australia, Juliana Areias began her music career in Europe and lectured in New Zealand, but it was her first original album “Bossa Nova Baby” produced in Perth that elevated her to the next level. Featured on ABC National Radio on Australia Day 2016, the CD received multiple music award nominations and earned regular air play around the world. Filled with original tunes, the CD is an infectious blend of bossa-nova with samba, jazz, pop, funk, choro, ballad, and tango rhythms.

Press-release – Juliana Areias – Bossa Nova Baby in Brazil

Bossa Nova Baby retorna ao Brasil para lançamento de álbum de estreia e show em São Paulo, em dezembro

  • A cantora e compositora Juliana Areias estourou na Austrália, onde mora há nove anos, com o disco Bossa Nova Baby, produzido via crowdfunding e patrocínio do Departamento de Cultura e Arte da Austrália

  • Agora traz toda sua alma e bossa para a turnê brasileira, que começa por São Paulo, no dia 17 de dezembro, vai para o Rio de Janeiro, no dia 28 de dezembro, com show marcado no lendário Beco das Garrafas, e segue por Salvador, Fortaleza e Brasília

juliana-areias-bossa-nova-baby-na-avenida-paulista-2016O que é que a bossa nova tem? Muito a contar ainda! Embora os brasileiros andem um pouco esquecidinhos dela, os australianos tem amado o ritmo cada dia mais por obra de Juliana Areias, a cantora e compositora brasileira, que decidiu que era hora de lançar seu primeiro álbum por lá em 2015, depois de muito cantar mundo afora. Para tanto, reuniu 12 composições de sua autoria (listadas abaixo), que trazem um quê de samba, jazz, funk americano, tango, choro, pop e, claro, muita bossa, chamou os melhores músicos de jazz de Perth, onde mora, e com apoio conseguido via crowdfunding, além do patrocínio do Departamento de Cultura e Arte da Austrália, deu vida ao seu primeiro bebê artístico, o “Bossa Nova Baby”.

juliana-areias-bossa-nova-baby-folha-de-sao-paulo-ilustrada-2016“Foi interessante ver instrumentistas de jazz australianos dando o tempero deles a ritmos tão tipicamente brasileiros. Acho que isso traz uma sonoridade nova ao álbum e reflete o que é este trabalho e minha carreira com um todo: a união de uma raiz brasileira muito forte, sempre presente, mas com influências dos lugares por onde passei. As faixas, inclusive, foram compostas em parceria com músicos do Brasil, Austrália, Nova Zelândia e Europa”, conta Juliana.

Bombando na Austrália desde o lançamento, “Bossa Nova Baby” é presença constante nas rádios do país. Além de ser finalista em diversos prêmios na categoria World Music/Latin Jazz, concorreu a Melhor Álbum do Ano em 2015 e 2016 no WAM AWARD. “Flecha” e “Maré Cheia” também foram finalistas na categoria Melhor Canção do Ano, no prêmio australiano WAM SOTY 2015.

juliana-areias-em-sao-paulo-2016-na-rua-onde-cresceu-almirante-marques-leao-bela-vistaCom o sucesso no exterior, a cantora a casa torna para o lançamento oficial do disco, neste fim de 2016, como parte do projeto “Brasilidades” da Bossa Nova Productions. Em parceria com a agência de entretenimento e rádio online Bossa Nova Club, Juliana Areias prepara um itinerário que começa por São Paulo, onde faz show no dia 17 de dezembro, no Teatro Espaço Promon, muito bem acompanhada por um quinteto de músicos da Orquestra de Jazz Sinfônica de São Paulo, sendo um deles o baixista Rubens de Donno ou apenas Binho, musicista conceituado e primo de Juliana, uma de suas primeiras inspirações na música (descrição de todos os membros abaixo).

Já no dia 28 de dezembro, Ju Areias se apresenta no lendário Beco das Garrafas, no Rio de Janeiro, meca da bossa nova e local onde Elis e Lennie Dale se apresentaram no começo de suas carreiras, como mostra “Elis – O Filme”, que estreia em 24 de novembro:

Será uma apresentação única com os músicos convidados: José Carlos Bigorna (sax/ flauta), Natan Gomes (teclados), Humberto Mirabelli (violão e guitarra), Rodrigo Villa (baixo) e Victor Bertrami (bateria).

Em ambas as apresentações, Juliana apresentará as faixas de seu álbum e os clássicos da bossa nova à sua maneira: “Garota de Ipanema”, homenagem a Tom Jobim e ao violonista Raphael Rabello, falecido em 1995, que antes de morrer gravou com Paco de Lucia uma versão instrumental, “a mais bonita e original de todas”, segundo a Bossa Nova Baby; “Águas de Março”, que terá o arranjo original da gravação de Tom Jobim e Elis Regina; “Rio”, de Roberto Menescal, uma homenagem à Leny Andrade, a cantora que Juliana mais ouviu e que costumava chamá-la de “amiguinha das fotos” porque não largava sua máquina fotográfica em seus shows; além de “Paris, de Santos Dumont aos travestis”, de Moacyr Luz e Aldir Blanc, canção divertidíssima, que mistura português com francês, e retrata a mistura da musica brasileira. 

“Para mim, esta volta ao Brasil vai ser muito especial. Lembro que ainda adolescente queria saber tudo sobre bossa nova e acabou que nessa época conheci o Ruy Castro, que estava lançando o livro “Chega de saudade – a história e as histórias da Bossa Nova”. Ele ficou encantado que uma garota da minha idade soubesse tanto do assunto e me apelidou de Bossa Nova Baby. A vida me levou a muitos lugares depois disso, me apresentei no Montreux Jazz Festival, Sydney Opera House e no Ronnie Scott Jazz Club de Londres, e acabei lançando meu primeiro álbum em outro país, mas no fim ainda sou a bebê da Bossa Nova e estou super feliz de apresentar esse trabalho autoral na minha terra”, comemora Areias.

Sobre as faixas do álbum, por Juliana Areias:

“Flecha” é uma homenagem aos 450 anos do Rio. Pensei no próprio São Sebastião do Rio de Janeiro, com suas flechas e misturei à alegoria das flechas do Cupido, de Oxossi e do Centauro.

“Maré Cheia” foi composta em parceria com Johannes Dimyadi, violonista indonesiano, radicado na Nova Zelândia. É uma canção cheia de balanço, que cheira a mar e verão. Conta a história de um pescador e uma sereia se preparando para um encontro. Vale a pena assistir ao “Lyrics video” / Stop motion com a letra da música sendo lavada pelo mar da praia de Cottesloe, cartão postal da cidade de Perth. Tem participação da Lilás, minha filha: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abXomXnNhxY

“Garoto de Copacabana” é uma homenagem a Tom Jobim, à bossa nova e sua “Garota de Ipanema”.

“Dia a dia” é sobre a vivência em São Paulo, em ritmo de tango cinematográfico.

“Como Vai” é a canção pop do álbum. Tem ares de Steve Wonder e Rita Lee, que foi minha primeira referência, inclusive “Bossa Nova Baby” como um todo é dedicado a Rita Lee e Tom Jobim. 

“Night in Takapuna” é a única canção em inglês do álbum e homenageia a praia de Takapuna, meu local favorito Auckland, Nova Zelândia, onde me tornei mãe.

“Estrela Acalanto” é para os filhotes Jobim e Lilás, nomes que escolhi em homenagem a Tom e Djavan.

– “Última Canção de um amor” compus para Genebra, “Meu lugar”, para Salvador, e “Missão”, para Perth, cidades que amo e onde morei.

–  “Belas Artes” foi escrita para o artista e escultor cibernético australiano, Geoffrey Drake-Brockman, em mente, que virá ao Brasil pela primeira vez nessa turnê.

O que a imprensa já disse sobre a Bossa Nova Baby:

“Celebramos a nova face da música australiana com o excelente álbum de bossa nova da cantora brasileira, sediada em Perth, Juliana Areias”. – Lucky Oceans – Rádio ABC, Austrália

“Destaque na cena de Jazz de Perth, o lançamento do álbum Bossa Nova Baby eleva Juliana Areias a um novo patamar, acima de uma mera intérprete ou especialista de bossa nova. A cantora surpreende em uma elegante composição em parceria com Doug de Vries, o mais eminente violonista de sete cordas australiano”. – Tony Hillier, The Australian

“É bossa que bate bola com o jazz, como vem acontecendo desde os anos 1960, e que acerta o alvo”. – Antônio Carlos Miguel, G1

“Maravilhoso bebê brasileiro-australiano, ‘Bossa Nova Baby’ com composições contemporâneas de Bossa Nova”. – Patrick Van de Wiele, Key and Chords, Bélgica

“Ritmicamente perfeito e apaixonante performance vocal”. – John McBeath – Jazz and Beyond, The Australian

“Bossa nova pulsa forte”. – Tanya MacNauhton, The Western Suburbs, Austrália
