Described as “spine-tingling” (Rhythms) and “extraordinary” (Fine Music FM), Chaika create cinematic genre blending music inspired by Balkan vibrancy, Turkish markets, Celtic stories, and Australia’s own stunning landscapes.
Chaika will be performing at The Newsagency as part of their ‘Arrow’ tour, to celebrate the release of a third highly anticipated album, recorded and produced by ARIA award winning team Bob Scott and Llew Kiek. Chaika’s musicians have worked with an impressive roster including Nicky Bomba, Monsieur Camembert , Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Mara! & The Martenitsa Choir, The Song Company, The Rhythm Hunters, Kevin James, Baby et Lulu, Marais Ensemble, Elysian Fields, Miriam Lieberman Trio, Alireza Ghorbani, Great Waitress, Tángalo, Klezmer Divas, The London Bulgarian Choir, and The Renaissance Players, on major national and international stages.
At home wherever appreciative ears assemble – from roots and folk festivals to the world-class environs of Sydney’s City Recital Hall – Chaika surprise, thrill and move the unsuspecting listener. Decidedly “outside the norm” (Timber & Steel) Chaika traverse another age, journeying an unidentifiable era and landscape, in a manner simply referred to by The Australian as “enchanting.”
Doors at 7pm and music at 8pm. The Newagency is a licensed venue.
