Led by composer Barbara Snow and lyricist Tom Hannah, this four-piece band takes myriad ingredients: tango, chanson, rai, rumba, jazz and cabaret and then stir fry them in the wok of the musicians' collective subconscious to form an unforgettable evening of song and entertainment.

Formed in 2010, Chico Chica released their first album Mélangerie in 2011 and toured the UK and Ireland several times. The band are regulars at festivals (including Porthcawl Jazz Festival, Canterbury Arts Festival, Rye International Jazz and Blues Festival, Teignmouth Jazz Festival, Bedford Arts Festival, Upton Jazz Festival, Rye Arts Festival, Hampton Court Flower Show and Llanelli Jazz Festival) as well as jazz clubs in and around London (including Map Cafe, St James Theatre, Crazy Coqs, The Crypt St Martins in the Field, Bull's Head, ArtsDepot, Verdi Albert Hall, Southend Jazz Club, Hawth Theatre, Cliffs Pavilion Westcliff and Jagz Ascot, The Pheasentry Chelsea, Brassarie Zedel London).

Barbara Snow toured with Paul Weller, Jools Holland, Maxi Priest and The Blow Monkeys before forming Chico Chica.
