Folky balkan jazz with cinematic classicism

Welcome to Chaika

2014 saw Chaika go from strength to strength, with the first half spent recording our second album I Monti and touring it up and down the east coast of Australia to wonderful audiences and critical acclaim. 2015 has seen us make several festival appearances including at the National Folk Festival in Canberra. Coming up we’ll be spending some time as Artists in Residence at Bundanon, where we’ll start working on material for our third album.


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

We had a wonderful time at the National Folk Festival over Easter. Thank you to everyone who supported our music! It was great to see the long lines waiting to get in to our venues and we hope that those who wanted to see us did get a chance to at some point over the festival. If you didn’t, or if you want to see more, fear not – we have several gigs coming up including a fabulous night at Camelot Lounge in Marrickville with The String Contingent – bookings here.
