Chaia is a three-piece electro-folk group based in New York City featuring Kaia Berman Peters on electronic sampler, Rachel Leader on fiddle, and Maddie Russell on bass. Chaia performs house and techno music using samples from Eastern European Jewish (Yiddish) folk music, with harmonies and melodies borrowed from jazz and other improvisation-forward musics. The group has played at Jewish music festivals around the world (Shtetl Berlin, Yiddish New York, and KlezKanada), as well as at global electronic music festivals (the NAMM Show, NICE, A Fest). They’ve performed in collaboration with Dan Tombs (Fred. Again, Jon Hopkins) and Sidney Mills (Shabba Ranks, Madison McFerrin). Chaia’s upcoming album, Yibaneh (expected release: May 2024), was mixed by Russell Elevado (Jay Z, Al Green, D'Angelo). They’re excited to share their music with you and to dance late into the night!
