The Amigos

The Amigos

The Amigos deliver foot-stomping, accordion-infused Americana music blending folk-rock, zydeco/cajun, and hot jazz. As global ambassadors for American music, the Amigos toured 6 countries and 20 states in the past year, sharing a message of ecstatic collaboration and inclusion in over 200 performances in 2014. The Amigos have made education central to their musical goals. In 2014, they toured Cambodia, China, Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam through the U.S State Department’s American Music Abroad program. As part of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Jazz for Young People program, The Amigos give over 50 performances in NYC schools each year, focusing on democracy, freedom and improvisation, and cultural heritage.
