Chilli and Lime is...smooth. Listen to how the small Lindiwe Maxolo performs 'Ain't No Sunshine' with a voice as big as Table Mountain and you'll be hooked. …The jazz enters your soul, fluidly moving from choppy to smooth in one song, and culminating in something so magnificent that you almost forget to place your order.
