Folky balkan jazz with cinematic classicism
… ¬†¬†spellbinding beauty … exhilarating energy.

Welcome to Chaika

The year 2015 closed with Chaika making a highly anticipated appearance at classic Sydney venue The Basement with a 17 piece orchestra, with the Lucy Wise Trio as our wonderful support act. 2016 sees us take a few months hiatus while various band members are overseas, but keep an eye out for tour dates up and down the coast in May. In the meantime we will be continuing the work we started at Bundanon in May 2015 as Artists in Residence, where we began writing new material for our third album.

I Monti, the title track from Chaika’s latest album.
