We study collective modes in chirally asymmetric and momentum-anisotropic quark-gluon plasma, using a kinetic theory approach which is valid in the quasi-particle regime. We introduce a general ansatz to describe the parton distribution functions, and decompose the polarization tensor in terms of nine independent components. We derive and solve the dispersion equations. We discuss the dependence of the spectrum on the chiral chemical potential and the parameters that characterise the aniostropy of the distribution function. We study in particular the magnitude and domain of the unstable solutions, which can have an important influence on the system's dynamics.
