After enthralling audiences across the USA, Australia, Japan , Europe and Brazil,  Juliana Areias, the “Bossa Nova Baby” celebrates  her award for Best Brazilian Album released in the USA at the Focus Brasil Awards in Florida.

In 2018, Juliana Areias, along with her partner Cybernetics Artist Geoffrey Drake-Brockman and her kids Jobim and Lilas, embarked on the adventure of living in Manhattan for several months to promote their artistic works. Juliana Areias performed and promoted her Bossa Nova Baby album in New York, California, Florida, New Jersey and Washington DC.

Juliana Areias and Yamandu Costa

“After all the craziness of interrupting our work lives and the kids school routine by moving for months in the USA, with the loves of my life, my partner and my kids, to promote our artistic works there – and investing so much courage, energy, money, time, hard work and emotion – it is humbly gratifying to be among so many amazing artists at this award… Including the superstar prima-ballerina Ana Botafogo and opera singer Thiago Arancam, my dear Ivo de Carvalho and Yamandu Costa and my idol Antonio Adolfo (composer of “Pretty World/Sa Marina” as covered by Steve Wonder in 1971, by Ivete Sangalo in 2011 and many others). Congratulations to all the nominees and winners! To be alongside you is an enormous privilege… Thank you to the team at Focus Brasil Foundation and to all our old and new friends in the USA for opening your doors, your arms and your hearts, welcoming us so well… Thank you so much my beloved  Perth City and all who helped to give birth to this Bossa Nova Baby. Thank you all who have listened to or will listen to this album made with so much love…  I am eternally grateful to all of you…” – Juliana Areias thanks and celebrates her award win.

Sao Paulo born Juliana was personally introduced to the Bossa Nova founders when she was a teenager by legendary Brazilian Music historian and journalist Ruy Castro who also nicknamed her “The Bossa Nova Baby”. This direct exposure and unique experience inspired her to become a professional singer and songwriter.

Juliana Areias left Brazil in 1996 and she has been living in Perth, Australia since 2007. Perth, the most isolated capital of the world, is where she has produced her first original album “Bossa Nova Baby” with the support of the Department of the Culture and the Art of Western Australia and a crowdfunding campaign. The album features some of the best Australian Jazz musicians including seven-string guitarist Doug De Vries and many Jazz lecturers from WAAPA – the best Jazz University in Australia located in Perth, including bassist, arranger and producer Pete Jeavons and the late pianist Graham Wood.

The Bossa Nova Baby album presents a dialogue between Bossa Nova and other music genres such as pop, jazz and tango – creating a contemporary Latin Jazz musical fusion which is taking the Australian and the International music scene by storm. It was praised by Roberto Menescal, one of the creator of Bossa Nova and it was also declared as the “new face of Australian Music” by ABC Radio National.  The twelve songs of the album talk about places, people, sounds and stories from Juliana’s wonderful current life in Perth as well as reminisce about her past in Brazil, Switzerland and New Zealand. The album features songs including Maré Cheia / Full Tide (a pop-funk tune about the Yemanjá – queen of the sea in Afro-Brazilian Mythology); Flecha / Arrow (a samba-jazz tribute to Rio de Janeiro City);  Garoto de Copacabana / Boy from Copacabana (a bossa tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim, composer of the iconic The Girl From Ipanema); Missão / Mission (a samba dedicated to the Samba de Gafieira Dance community in Perth); Belas Artes / Fine Artes (a choro about her love Geoffrey Drake-Brockman’s artworks and artistic inspirations in Perth).

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 Fukiagi Hall in Japan, the Auckland Festival in New Zealand and the legendary Beco das Garrafas in Rio de Janeiro as well as an audience of 30,000 at the Ritmo Festival in Darling Harbour.

Now it is your turn to be 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

Let’s face it. Perth is great! It is time to celebrate it!

In between her USA and Japan tours, Juliana Areias is glad to be back home in Perth, Western Australia, celebrating the amazing original music and unique creative community of Perth.

“The greatest cultural lesson I have learned in America, was how much Americans embrace and celebrate their own culture and the arts, making ordinary life extraordinary. Let’s face it,  Perth has some of the best beaches of this planet, mesmerasing sky, trees, birds, friendly people, clean-safe-traffic free streets, a blessed life style and an amazing creative community exporting world class music, fine-art, films…  No more understatements, please. It is time we celebrate how lucky we are to be able to live and produce culture and arts here.  Perth is not just okay. Perth is great! Perth is wonderful! I love Perth! I am in love with Perth… I have always been… but now, even more than ever!I am so proud of calling Perth home and being part of this diverse and dynamic artistic scene. Let’s face the music and dance.”

In this spirit, after her “welcome back home” performances at the City of Perth’s Winter Festival (25/7) – Winter Sounds, celebrating the original music of Western Australia, produced by WAM ( Western Australia Music) and at the Ellington Jazz Club (28/7); Juliana Areias annouces her participation and support for the “Brazil V Australia Capoeira Fundraiser Gig”  at the Rosemount Hotel on Sunday 26th August 2018 featuring an ecletic line-up  from pop ballades, bossa, samba, capoeira to funk performers:

Renata Fantoches (4pm); Helen Townsend (4.45pm); Constanza Herrero (5.30pm); Belle Harvey & Band (6.15-6.45pm), Capoeira show (7-7.15pm);  Juliana Areias (7.30-8pm – with Joshua de Silva – guitar and Rafael Souza – pandeiro); Randa And The Soul Kingdom (8.15pm-9pm), Brazilian DJ (9-10pm).

“Perth’s great music scene gets together to support a genuine school dedicated to teach kids and adults the art of Capoeira, the Brazilian martial art which is more than a self defence fight, it is the expression of dance, music, culture and resistance created by our African slave ancestors which now is admired all around the world. My kids – now teenagers – were among the first children to learn Capoeira at this school and it is such a pleasure to see every year more people discovering and falling in love with it. Come this Sunday to experienceo a watercolour of sounds and how beautiful, fun and powerful Capoeira is. Facebook event : Brazil V Australia Capoeira Fundraiser Gig” – invites Juliana.
