Please Note Due to that bloody virus I'm afraid we can't invite you to attend this concert in person but it will be streamed 'live' over the Internet for your viewing pleasure! If you'd like to make a small contribution towards the artists please book in via HumanTix - you will be charged a small booking fee but it will be all be going to help fund an education program for girls. Otherwise simply go to this YouTube page or to Chaika's Facebook page this Saturday evening shortly before 7pm. By the way, a recording of the concert will be available on YouTube after the event in case you aren't able to watch on the night - watch this space for a link. Please do send this information to your friends - no matter where they are on this planet! :-)
Melding the earthiness of folk, dexterity of jazz and the craft of classical, Chaika’s vast influences create superb genre-blending music that transcends labels.
ARIA nominated, described as “spine-tingling” (Rhythms) and “extraordinary” (Fine Music FM), the Sydney-based sextet create a multi-faceted kaleidoscope of sounds - a true culmination of compositional, arranging and improvising prowess, performed with stunning attention to detail.
Their latest 2019 ARIA nominated release for Best World Music Album, ARROW (2019), has received heartfelt reviews, recorded and produced by ARIA award-winning team Bob Scott and Llew Kiek.
“Like a gust of wind ushering in a new season of possibilities … Arrow, as the title suggests, offered listeners a new direction in Australian Folk music, an innovative blend of beautifully crafted pieces.” (What’s on Sydney)
At home wherever appreciative ears assemble – from roots and folk festivals to the world-class environs of recital halls – Chaika surprise, thrill and move the unsuspecting listener in a manner simply referred to by The Australian as “enchanting.”
