Described as “spine-tingling” (Rhythms) and “extraordinary” (Fine Music FM), Chaika create worldly rhythmic textures inspired by Balkan vibrancy, Turkish markets, Celtic stories, and Australia’s own stunning landscapes. Their genre-blending sounds have been branded by fans as ‘Nomadic Folk-Jazz’. Employing ethereal harmonies (in several languages), a myriad of instruments and a dynamic ability for discovery, Chaika re- imagine and create their own exuberant music traversing incredible landscapes with jazz-like dexterity.
This April, 2019, they will release their third LP ‘Arrow’ – an almost completely original suite of work injected with the compositional personalities of all 6 members. Chaika comprises musicians who have written for and performed with a truly diverse roster, including Monsieur Camembert, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Nicky Bomba, The Brandenburg Orchestra, Riley Lee, Mara! & The Martenitsa Choir, and The Song Company to name a few.
