Chai Town

“The best part of waking up…”

Ten years ago, a group of young men took their musical talents to Champaign with an idea … to create a new flavor of a cappella that would excite the taste of peoples’ ear drums. That vision led to the creation of Chai-Town. Though it is considered a band, Chai-Town is a brotherhood of musicians that entertain their fans as they follow their love of music. For the past decade they have brewed cups of music that were “Good to the Last Drop” and have left their fans saying “Aaaah … Arohanam”; Yet, overtime, the scent from this Champaign brew emanated throughout the nation as people began to crave the taste of South Asian a cappella. From California to the Big Apple, audiences have tasted their famous blend of contemporary music with a hint of flavors from the homeland. With new arrangements and singers, their “Fresh Brewed” flavor will never cease to entertain you. Each generation of Chai-Town has always produced a blend for your ear drums to digest so see if you can smell the scent of their newest brew coming to a campus near you.

The 2011-2012 year was the 10 year anniversary of the group. Last year we performed at universities and venues in Iowa, Chicago, and Kansas for a variety of events such as shows and competitions. We also had the pleasure of releasing our 3rd Studio Album, multiple music videos, and being featured in the Times of India! As 2012-2013 year approaches, Chai-Town is excited to see what this year holds!

Chai-Town is a completely student-run, non-profit group of 14 members and many alum, each of whom has a passion for music. We love sharing this passion with our friends and family, our community, and the world.
