Vida Chai is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in the Pittsburgh area. They were exposed to music ranging from The Beatles, Ella Fitzgerald, and Yiddish lullabies as a child. As a young adult, this led to their fascination with folk-americana, indie, and neosoul styles.
Avi's music is characterized by brutally honest story-telling inspired by every day experiences and relationships.
They have released one full length album, two EPs, and most recently the EP and accompanying show, "Somewhere Strange."
In October 2022, this project was adapted into a fully staged live music and dance production through the Community Sponsored Artist program at the New Hazlett Theater.
