chaika march 19, 2020

Chaika returns!

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.

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.”

RAGA SHAMBHALA – BRIDGING THE HIMALAYAS

Celebrated international musicians Tenzin Choegyal (Tibet), Taro Terahara and Ayako Ikeda (Japan) are excited to announce their upcoming Raga Shambhala tour, presenting a total of 19 concerts over 4 weeks throughout Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales.
Raga Shambhala offers a magical musical fusion of joyful Tibetan song with glorious Indian flute. The sounds of bansuri and tabla blend seamlessly with Tenzin’s flute, dranyen and vocal offerings in an interplay which is sensitive and beautifully rendered.

Tenzin Choegyal is one of a handful of artists keeping Tibet’s music alive in the freedom of exile, and is held in high esteem by other performers from all genres. His cantering rhythms, soaring vocals and exquisite flute solos have enchanted audiences around the globe, including concerts at Carnegie Hall, New York with Phillip Glass, Laurie Anderson and Patti Smith.

Accomplished bansuri master Taro Terahara and tabla player Ayako Ikeda are leaders in the thriving and highly competitive Indian classical music scene in Japan. The bansuri (Indian flute) beautifully captures the sound of the air, the mountains and the uplifting devotional mood of Krishna, as their music soars, swoops and transports listeners to realms of pure sound, engaging the mind and touching the heart.

next open stage night is March 28, 2020
