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.

Dive into the seven oceans of songs about  iconic beaches, mythic creatures, lost treasures and magic tales of Neptune, Poseidon, Yemanja, sirens, mermaids, mermen, albatrosses, pirates, fish-men, African slave ships and Atlantis’s mysteries.

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”.

– “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
