Folky balkan jazz with cinematic classicism
… spellbinding beauty … exhilarating energy.
Welcome to Chaika
This year started with a bang supporting Irish multi-platinum artist Sharon Shannon for her only Sydney show at The Basement: from the likes of playing alongside Bono, Sinead O’Connor, and Alison Krauss, we felt like we were in very good company, especially when her band got cranking out the tunes and the crowd was stomping along.
Our exciting news is that we are getting ready to record our third album. We’ve spent a year and a half of work honing a dozen or so brand new tunes that we started writing at Bundanon in May 2015 while we were Artists in Residence there. Our audiences have been loving this new music as much as we do and we’re looking forward to recording it later this year.
