Chaika: The Mountains Tour @ Wodonga Arts Space
A Wodonga debut - Chaika brings their special sound to Wodonga Arts Space.
Concert at 8pm - 90 minutes no interval
Chaika draws influence from folk traditions, jazz and classical music to create a beguiling and original sound-world. Described as ‘cinematic, deeply touching and meditative’, as well as ‘exuberant, virtuosic and uplifting’, Chaika’s strength is the elusiveness of their style.
Their latest release ‘I Monti’ (The Mountains), is a collection of both original and traditional pieces, gently wandering through foreign lands, emerging with an enchanting tale to tale.
Following their successful debut album of 2012 and Australian tour of 2013, Chaika takes to the road again with this highly anticipated release. “The Mountains Tour” will traverse the east coast of Australia from Melbourne to Brisbane, playing both capitol cities and regional centres.
