Described as “spine-tingling” (Rhythms) and “extraordinary” (Fine Music FM), Chaika create worldly rhythmic textures inspired by Balkan vibrancy, Celtic stories, and Australia’s own stunning landscapes.
Their genre-blending sounds have been branded by fans as ‘Nomadic Folk-Jazz’. Employing ethereal harmonies, a myriad of instruments and a dynamic ability for discovery, Chaika re- imagine and create their own exuberant music traversing incredible landscapes with jazz-like dexterity.
This April 2019, they will release their third LP ‘Arrow’ – an almost completely original suite of work injected with the compositional personalities of all 6 members. Chaika comprises musicians who have written for and performed with a truly diverse roster, including Monsieur Camembert, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Nicky Bomba, The Brandenburg Orchestra, Riley Lee, Mara! & The Martenitsa Choir, The Song Company, The Rhythm Hunters, Kevin James, Baby et Lulu, Marais Ensemble, Elysian Fields, Miriam Lieberman Trio, Alireza Ghorbani, Great Waitress, and The London Bulgarian Choir, on major national and international stages.
At home wherever appreciative ears assemble – from folk festivals to the world-class environs of Sydney’s City Recital Hall – Chaika surprise, thrill and move the unsuspecting listener. Decidedly “outside the norm” (Timber & Steel) Chaika traverse another age, journeying an unidentifiable era and landscape, in a manner simply referred to by The Australian as “enchanting.”
