An exciting World Music double-bill featuring Sydney band, Chaika, and Hello Tut Tut from Melbourne!

Don’t miss this World Music Fiesta when these two fabulous bands share the same stage for the very first time!

Sydney six-piece ensemble, Chaika, are sensuous, cinematic and at times irresistibly danceable. Their music is a rich tapestry of spine-tingling vocal harmonies that weave seamlessly into instrumental dialogues, drawing influence from the Balkans and contemporary jazz. Clarinet, violin, piano, double-bass, guitar, accordion, vocals and percussion create soundscapes that go beyond the folk and jazz genres, recalling the textures and dynamic temperament of classical music and certainly with the same demand of technical agility.

They have toured extensively nationwide to great acclaim, performing at many high profile venues and festivals. 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.

Hailing from Melbourne, Hello Tut Tut have made a speedy ascent on the World Music scene, winning over local and international crowds with their performances at Falls Festival (Byron Bay), Bello Winter Music Festival, Live en Août (New Caledonia) and a collection of Australia’s most recognised venues.

They are fun, dynamic and daring when it comes to creating original music. Tapping into their European roots, the band has a fresh take on Klezmer, Balkan, Gypsy and Latin musical traditions. By blending these styles with the pulse of contemporary dance music culture, this seven-piece outfit brings high energy shows that get you up and dancing.

“Dynamic and loads of fun, this band is the hottest new group on the world music scene in Australia, paving new directions in original Eastern European inspired party music! ” — Tania Bosak (Open Studio)
