Brasilian singer and songwriter
Miscellaneous-samba-groove from Rio de Janeiro
Juliano Juba is a singer and a composer from the new generation of the Brazilian music. He produced his first solo album,"JULIANO JUBA", in a totally independent way.
Juliano Deane de Moraes was born in Rio de Janeiro and he does not tell the story of a poor boy from the suburb that found in music a way to get out of this unfavorable environment. His mother was a ballerina and his father a sound technician, therefore he was raised in an artistic environment. He started studying music at an early age and he started performing professionaly at the age of 16.
His mother, Cristina Deane, used to play the cuíca at the samba school Unidos de Vila Isabel and nowadays she still works as a crooner in balls and parties at the carioca night. Juliano Juba started his career playing the guitar with his mother in presentations at hotels through all Copacabana beach.
Juliano lived very closely to some important people from samba music and, at the same time, he used to go to funk parties in the north area of the city of Rio de Janeiro. He was friends with people from the most different areas, from cinema to poetry. It can be said that this diversity was fundamental to his musical development.
He was part of the group of Mestre Darcy do Jongo, where he had direct contact with rudimentary African elements inserted in the Brazilian culture. It was during this period that he started to mix in his compositions the harmonic language of pop music with the rythmic cells of the African drums.
Invited by David Tygel, Juba composed three songs for the movie Dois perdidos numa noite suja (directed by José Jofilly) soundtrack.
Creator of the group “Juba e a Peneira”, he conquered a quite good space in the alternative musical scene of Rio de Janeiro in the year of 2001.
In 2007, Juliano moved to São Paulo and started his solo career, which reaches its climax with the recording of this album.
Juliano Juba pays attention to directions and presents his vision of the contemporary Brazilian music.
The roots of Jongo have a chance. Yes, funk has something to say. Samba and black music dance to the afrobeat and the lyrics leave a positive message that poetry persists.
This is JULIANO JUBA.
