    Duo Agogo

    Melbourne Guitarists Adam May and Paul Carey are Duo Agogo, the pair perform Brazilian choro music as well as original compositions inspired by Brazil and beyond. Their live shows are a fiery display of one of the first truly Brazilian instrumental music forms and a showcase of guitar mastery. In 2015 they became the first Australian Guitarists to be invited to the Zihuatenejo International Guitar Festival in Mexico. Their new CD ‘Pacific’ tells the tale of this epic adventure.

    Paul Carey and Julian Scheffer

    Paul and Julian compose contemporary music influenced by Brazilian and Argentinean sounds. Paul and Julian’s first musical meeting was in June 2010 in Glora, Rio de Janeiro. Since then a true musical and personal friendship has developed. The project was realized on a hot night in Paul’s adopted kitchen in Rio in 2010 over a bottle of cachaça.
