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

Welcome to Chaika

This year has so far seen us take a tour in May up and down the coast in NSW and the ACT with some brand new tunes, music that we started writing at Bundanon in May 2015 while we were Artists in Residence there. The tour was a wonderful couple of weeks well spent performing and honing our new music to wonderfully appreciative and on occasion sold out audiences. We’ve continued working on more new music since and are looking forward to performing it at some great gigs and festivals coming up towards the end of the year.

I Monti, the title track from Chaika’s latest album.
Head over to our YouTube channel to view more.

Head over to bandcamp to hear more of our music.


Thank you so much to everyone who came to support our charity fundraiser at Humph Hall, we made over $1200 to go towards helping UNHCR in their efforts to lift the burden for refugees worldwide. We’ve just returned from the Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival where we were happy to let so much of our new repertoire loose on really great audiences (you know who you are!)

And we can’t wait until November rolls around, when we’re heading to Queensland to play at QPAC and the beautiful Jungle Love Festival over the weekend of 25th-27th.
