They [Chilli & Lime] were absolutely stunning. From all the various people I have ever worked with in the past, these people were the most friendly, open, honest, accommodating and easy-going. It was a pleasure working with them and the client was over the moon.”

Chilli & Lime is…smooth. Listen only once to how the petite Lindiwe Maxolo does ‘Ain’t no Sunshine’ with a voice larger than Table Mountain and you’re hooked. …the jazz slips into your soul – seamlessly shifting from choppy to smooth in one song – ending in something so sublime you almost forget to place your order.
