Chris Carlone and Rita Braga met on myspace in 2007 having a mutual admiration for each others music. Rita asked Chris if he’d like to play some slide guitar on some recordings she was working on and the rest was history! Between Portugal and the USA they would send MP3s back and forth. Before even meeting in person, they had collaborated on a half dozen songs together, 3 of which made it to Rita’s critically acclaimed debut album, “Cherries That Went to the Police”

Since those early recordings that bonded a lifelong friendship, they’ve met around once a year to play music and make videos. Since 2007 Chips and Salsa have played in Tucson, NYC, Philly, somewhere in Connecticut, Lambertville NJ., Lisbon and The Azores on the beautiful island of Sao Miguel at the PANAZOREAN FILM FESTIVAL.

Below is a collection of videos from the CHIPS AND SALSA reunions since 2008:
