On tour to launch their highly anticipated third album ‘Arrow’, Chaika has secured a sneaky secret not so secret ALBUM LAUNCH at the National Folk Festival in Canberra. Where else but the FLUTE AND FIDDLE at 11pm on the Sunday evening. Come and PARTAY with us! (Don’t look for us on the program, we aren’t officially there, which makes it all the more exciting.)
Described as “spine-tingling” (Rhythms) and “extraordinary” (Fine Music FM), Chaika create worldly rhythmic textures inspired by Balkan vibrancy, Turkish markets, Celtic stories &
Australia’s own stunning landscapes. Their genre-blending sounds are branded as ‘Nomadic Folk-Jazz’.
Employing ethereal harmonies (in several languages), a myriad of instruments & a dynamic ability for discovery, Chaika re-imagine and create their own exuberant music traversing incredible landscapes with jazz-like dexterity.
This April, they release their third LP ‘Arrow’ –
an almost completely original suite of work injected with the compositional personalities of all 6 members that will elate, create joy and inspire! Chaika surprise, thrill & move the unsuspecting listener. A joy!
