Maria Chiara Argirò is an Italian pianist, keyboard player and composer who currently lives in London. After going on tour with These New Puritans and many more bands, Argirò started to colour her jazz with a twist of contemporary genres. With the release of her debut album ‘The Fall Dance’ at the end of 2016, you can hear how she has pulled away from traditional jazz and started to create her own sound. In that vein, the album is a collection of jazz instrumentals that aims to get people excited about the genre again. The group will present live for the first time some brand new compositions from the second album ‘Hidden Seas’ (to be released later in 2019).
