After the great launch concert for her first original album “Bossa Nova Baby”, Juliana Areias, the Bossa Nova Baby herself – is back at the Ellington to present a one-night only show; “From Sugarloaf to Absinthe” – a blend of classic and exotic tunes from the tropical plantations of sugarcane, cocoa and coffee – blended with the bohemian spirit of “La Belle Époque”.
The concert will embrace timeless classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema”, “Quizas” (“Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps”) and “La Vie en Rose” and feature a stellar line-up of musicians, including Mark Shanahan – nylon string guitar, Marcio Mendes – percussion, Paul Millard – flute/sax, special guests and more surprises.
An exuberant night of sensuous bossas and sambas from Rio’s Sugarloaf, joyful rumbas and boleros inspired by the Caribbean Islands and the Aztec lands of Mexico along with some inebriating fine drops of French swing.
