Austin's Premier Brazilian Choro Band
 

Caros Amigos ("Dear Friends") 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 group specializes in performances of Brazilian music - namely "choro" (a cousin of "samba") - standards by Brazilian mainstays as well as originals by the group and their "caros amigos."

 

Each member of this awesome and unique band 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.
