Juliana Areias – Jobim Songbook Concert
Saturday 19 September 7.00pm
The concert will embrace timeless Jobim bossa classics – such as; The Girl from Ipanema, One note samba, Corcovado, No more blues (Chega de Saudade), Waters of March (Aguas de Marco) – which were introduced to the English Speaking world by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao & Astrud Gilberto, Sergio Mendes, Stan Getz, Charlie Byrd, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Diana Krall, Herbie Hancock, and Al Jarreau, Esperanza Spalding; – as well as other breathtaking Jobim compositions that may sound new for the audience.
Juliana was personally introduced to the Bossa Nova founders when she was a teenager by the legendary Brazilian music historian and journalist Ruy Castro who also named her “The Bossa Nova Baby”. This direct contact with the bossa masters inspired her to become a professional singer and songwriter.
For this exceptionally special concert, Juliana Areias has assembled a blazing line-up of sensational musicians and special guests – showcasing the amazing talent and cultural diversity we are so lucky to have in Perth. Juliana Areias is honoured to share the stage on this sensuous musical journey with the grooviest cats in town: Paul Millard – sax/flute, Joshua de Silva – 7 string hybrid guitar, Bronton Ainsworth – drums and percussionist Rafael Medeiro de Souza.
Juliana Areias has performed on major stages around the world 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. Dubbed the “Bossa Nova Baby” by iconic Brazilian journalist Ruy Castro, her original album “Bossa Nova Baby” won “Best Brazilian Album” at the US Focus Brazil Awards in 2019 and spent five weeks in the US Top 100 Jazz Charts. Juliana has also been nominated five times for Western Australian Music Awards including Best World Music Act and Best Song.
