BEMAC presents CHAIKA with Kristin Berardi & James Sherlock
BEMAC is thrilled to be presenting CHAIKA with Kristin Berardi & James Sherlock for one night only. Both renowned and award winning artists in their own right, this not to be missed Live collaboration will be performed in Brisbane at the Queensland Multicultural Centre (QMC) on January 4.
Kristin Berardi and James Sherlock have been making music together since 2004. They have four albums together and their second duo album, “If you were there” received the National Jazz Bell Award for The Best Jazz Vocal Album of 2010, their third and fourth were nominated for the same award in 2014 and 2018.
Chaika meld the earthiness of folk, dexterity of jazz and the craft of classical, to 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.
