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

Welcome to Chaika

Chaika saw the New Year in at the always wonderful Woodford Folk Festival, performing alongside artists Lior, Martin Hayes, John Butler, Kate Miller Heidke, Michael Askill, Lindsay Pollack, and a plethora of other stellar acts. Catch us next at the beautiful Cygnet Folk Festival in Tasmania on the 12th-14th January, or at the National Folk Festival over Easter (29 March – 2 April).
