Described as “spine-tingling” (Rhythms Magazine) 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.

Now celebrating the release of their third album, Arrow, Chaika’s musicians have worked with an impressive roster including Nicky Bomba, Monsieur Camembert, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and London’s Bulgarian Choir.

“Enchanting” (The Australian) audiences from boutique folk festivals to the world-class Sydney City Recital Hall, Chaika surprise and move listeners with music that sits firmly “outside the norm” (Timber & Steel). Not to be missed.
