Born and raised in Brazil, Juliana Areias began her music career in Europe before moving to Australia. It was her all original CD “Bossa Nova Baby” that catapulted her to fame less than two years ago. Featured on Australia Day 2016, the CD received multiple music award nominations and earned regular air play around the world. Her Bossa Nova Baby Show is filled with original tunes as well as classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema” and “Mas Que Nada,” blending jazz, pop, funk, ballad, and tango, all drawing on infectious samba rhythms.
Ms. Areias has performed at many major venues around the world including the famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the Auckland Festival in New Zealand, The Sydney Opera House in Australia and Beco des Garrafas, the legendary jazz club in Rio de Janeiro. Her first U.S. tour which began in Florida and ends in New York City marks the launch of her “Bossa Nova Baby” CD in America. In mid-June, she performed at New Jersey’s popular Bickford Theatre to an enthusiastic audience of bossa nova fans.
