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

Welcome to Chaika

After closing last year with a highly anticipated appearance performing with a 17 piece orchestra, 2016 has so far seen us take a tour up and down the coast in NSW and the ACT with some brand new tunes. This was 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 and are now looking forward to some great gigs and festivals coming up.

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

Head over to bandcamp to hear more of our music.


Thank you so much to everyone who came to support us on our May 2016 tour! We had such a wonderful time meeting new faces and catching up with old friends. Our next gig is in Sydney in September on Sat 10th at Humph Hall, which will be a charity fundraiser for UNHCR, followed by a gig with Melbourne outfit the Willie Wagtails on Thurs 22nd. In October we return to the Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival and in November we have something very special planned for Queensland & Brisbanites… Watch this space!
