Hot on the heels of closing the Vivid Sydney Festival, Sydney sextet Chaika are performing live at One Space HQ Bondi for the first time. Sensuous, cinematic and at times irresistibly danceable, Chaika’s music is a rich tapestry of spine-tingling vocal harmonies that weave seamlessly into instrumental dialogues, drawing influence from the Balkans and jazz. They have toured extensively nationwide to great acclaim, performing at many high profile venues and festivals including opening for Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass festival in 2014, and in 2016 closing for the Jungle Love Festival. Their music has been described as “deeply touching and meditative” as well as “exuberant, virtuosic and uplifting”. Individually their members have written for and performed with artists such as Monsieur Camembert, Mara! & the Martenitsa Choir, Riley Lee, The Rhythm Hunters and The Song Company. Together they create music of spellbinding beauty and exhilarating energy.
