Cacao is a duo from Kent blending jazz and blues with contemporary funk and pop.

Sander and Harry forged Cacao due to a shared love of fruit as well as artists such as Jamie Cullum, Jacob Collier, Snarky Puppy and Vulfpeck.

Improvisation is key to Cacao's performance, and as multi-instrumentalists the choice of instruments varies from song to song.

The two met while members of the Kent Youth Jazz Orchestra and soon became interested in getting to know the local music scene of Tunbridge Wells. Noticing a distinct lack of fruit, the two quickly jumped at the opportunity to bring together the energy and musical complexity of funk music with the organic and nutritious benefits of having your 5 a day.

Since starting in January, we’ve been fortunate to play at venues including The Grey Lady and The Forum and we’re pleased to be playing in London where we hear fruit is already a big thing.
