Austin's Premier Brazilian Choro Band
 

Caros Amigos is a new and exciting band featuring flute (Julie Koidin), saxophone (Scotty McIntosh), 7-string guitar (Adam Carney) and percussion (Sergio Santos).   Started in 2021 with Julie Koidin's move to Austin from Chicago, the quartet performs authentic arrangements of Brazil's famous "Pixinguinha and Benedito Lacerda band."

 

Each member of this awesome and unique quartet brings a unique approach to music making which when put together is a brilliant whirlwind of color and technical skill.   Flutist Julie Koidin is one of the few U.S. specialists in Brazilian choro - a musical cousin of samba, and in 2016 hosted the nationally broadcast radio show, "A Joyful Cry: Brazil's Choro Music" on the WFMT Radio Network for the Summer Olympics.  Multi-instrumentalist/Saxophonist, Scotty McIntosh, originally from Montreal, Canada, is one of the most active musicians in Austin, performing with a wide breadth of musical groups in various styles ranging from jazz to salsa.  Guitarist, Adam Carney, is originally from Missouri, and  performs on two rare instruments in the U.S. - the 7-string guitar and the beautiful "harp-guitar."  Percussionist Sergio Santos, is originally from Santos, Brazil and like Scotty and Adam, has been a long-time fixture in Austin's famous music scene.
