Album Notes
Adam May and Paul Carey are Duo Agogo. The Melbourne musicians perform traditional Brazilian choro music as well as original compositions inspired by choro and other Brazilian forms and rhythms. Adam and Paul have been performing and recording together as a duo since 2009, and have performed from festival and conservatorium stages to the gritty back lane bars and clubs around Australia.
Adam May is a specialist at playing the Brazilian Ukulele, the cavaquinho (four single strings tuned Dgbd). The cavaquinho is the quintessential instrument used in choro groups in Brazil, and Adam is one of a small but growing number of international musicians who performs on this specialist instrument. Paul Carey accompanies on the nylon-string acoustic guitar.
Duo Agogo has appeared at the Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival Mexico 2015, Adelaide International Guitar Festival 2010, opening night of the Melbourne International Film Festival 2013, Guitar Perspectives 2012-2014, curatored by The Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, The Australian-Latin American Film Festival 2010-2012, RITMO Brazil Day Festival Sydney 2012, and the Wollongong conservatorium 2011. The duo has held residencies at the RACV City Club, Melbourne 2011-2014, Samba Cine Club Melbourne 2010-2014, The Wesley Anne 2010-2014 and Rue Bebelons Bar, 2009-2012.
Paul and Adam regularly collaborate in other Brazilian based bands including Trio Agogo (http://www.trioagogo.com/) and Agobloco (Marchinhas de Carnaval) and they can be heard performing in and around Melbourne with Sexteto Zona Sul, Julian Scheffer and PC’s Boom Boom Combo.
Adam is also an experienced teacher, and recently completed his Master of Music in ethnomusicology at The University of Melbourne, specialising in Brazilian instrumental music. Adam regularly delivers workshops on Brazilian music rhythms, styles and performances practices. In 2014 Adam deliver a lecture and performance on popular Brazilian instrumental music styles as part of the Melbourne Recital Centre’s “Musical Explorations”.
Both musicians have lived, studied and travelled in Brazil, bringing a wealth of knowledge and understanding to their music. The 2011 Trio Agogo recording ‘The story of Benjamin Constant’ was conceived and written by Paul Carey in Brazil, and tells the story of the street where members of the group lived in Rio de Janeiro. Rua Benjamin Constant, a lively street in an inner suburb of Rio provides the backdrop and inspiration for the original compositions, which recreate the rich tapestry of Brazilian street life.
Duo Agogo have recently appeared on a number of new Brazilian inspired recordings including ‘Pacific’, ‘Sexteto Zona Sul’ and ‘Ao Meu Lado’; however it is their live performances that captivate their audiences, presenting a fiery display of one of the first truly Brazilian instrumental music forms performed from an uniquely Australian perspective.
